CERT provides basic training to take care of yourself, family, and neighbors when first responders are not available. CERT describes the content of its training and the requirements for certification:

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is an all-risk, all-hazard training. This valuable course is designed to help you protect yourself, your family, your neighbors and your neighborhood in an emergency situation.

CERT members receive 17 1/2 hours (one day a week for seven weeks) of initial training.

CERT is provided free of charge within the city of Los Angeles to anyone 18 or over.

Classes are taught year-round, Monday-Friday, morning, afternoon, or evening. We will come to your location. Classes can be held anywhere in the City of Los Angeles. Classes outside of LA City require special preapproval.

A schedule of upcoming classes(link is external) throughout the city is maintained on the Los Angeles CERT website(link is external).
