The Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management offers a CERT training course, which consists of three (3) classes, to accepted applicants who are interested in learning how to respond to disasters in their community. Throughout the training, participants will learn basic disaster preparedness skills in the classroom and in the field. The class concludes with a practical exercise in which class participants will respond to a simulated disaster to practice skills learned in the classroom.
Upon finishing the CERT training series, participants will earn a certificate. Participants must attend all classes to complete the CERT training series and receive a certificate.
The CERT Basic Training course will be held at the Public Safety Center: 330 W. Scott St. Springfield, MO 65802.
