CERT in Mill Valley
April 2 & 9, 2016 Saturdays
8:30 am - 5:30 pm
$45 • 18 hrs

Visit Ready Marin or our own FHA website under Emergency Preparedness for a full explanation of how public safety training benefits us all.

There are multiple opportunities to take CERT training over the coming months. Go to the Ready Marin Calendar to find the courses near you and at dates which suit; registration available online.

Best of all, as an active member of the Floating Home Association, the CERT fee (currently $45) is fully reimbursable upon completion of your CERT training.

Then again, maybe you've done the CERT training, and are interested in training others. Or you'd like to dust off your skills as an instructor, or have intrinsic experience that would make you an ideal trainer. Consider signing up for the Train the Trainer workshop.
