CERT Participants Manual

The University of Utah has online training materials covering the nine CERT modules. Once you compete the modules, you will receive a certificate. You will then provide this to our Training Coordinator, Wendy Shoop, who will then provide a hands-on “mock disaster” training opportunity for you to complete your CERT Training. Our next in-person training will be held in the Spring 2024.

Volunteers needed!

Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services may not be able to meet the demand for all the requests. Factors such as number of victims, communication failures, and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moments notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life-saving and life-sustaining needs.


Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) are trained to help neighborhoods and communities mitigate disasters during the first 72 hours following a disaster when access by professional Emergency Response teams might be restricted.

The purpose of CERT training is to provide private citizens with the basic skills that they will need to handle many of their own needs and then to respond to their neighborhoods’ and communities’ needs in the aftermath of a disaster.
