Psychological First Aid Training

CERT Members:

In light of the recent disasters, we strongly encourage our CERT members to be trained in Psychological First Aid. After a disaster, the psychological effects are usually more widespread than the physical effects. This online training will be helpful to you and those around you when deployed to a disaster.

After talking to our CERT Coordinator, Chris Diltz, we decided if you take this online class, you can count this toward your volunteer time.  When you are done, send a note to Chris at with a scanned or photographed copy of your certificate of completion, along with how much time you took for the class.
