The CERT National Program Office is pleased to announce that a new set of CERT training videos has been posted to the national CERT website. The eight new videos are described below. In addition to their primary use by CERT instructors during delivery of the CERT Basic Training course, the videos can used for review by individuals and teams who have completed their basic training.
The CERT in Action video can also be used by CERT coordinators/managers to help promote the program. Three of the videos depict effective trainer techniques in demonstrating and coaching CERT skills in the classroom. These are intended for use in the CERT Train-the-Trainer course. To ensure they are accessible to a broad audience, each video is also available in closed-caption format or with Spanish subtitles.
Please visit the national CERT website at https://www.ready.gov/community-emergency-response-team to view more information. The videos can be downloaded and viewed at your computer, or copied onto a DVD. Whether for your own use, CERT training in the classroom or for a community preparedness event, we hope you find these new resources useful.
