What is CERT?
CERT training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and maximize your capability to help for the greatest number of people after a disaster.

CERT Training Covers:

  • Disaster Preparation
  • Emergency Operations Organizational Structure
  • Disaster Medical Operations
  • Disaster Psychology
  • Fire Safety
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • Terrorism and CERT Response

At the conclusion of the 20 hours of training, scheduled in eight class sessions, most of them in-person, a new MIT CERT member will be active to participate in emergency response and large-scale activities hosted on campus as a part of MIT's emergency operations.
