To sustain its program, the City of Carlsbad holds one nine week CERT academy a year. All CERT academy candidates must first attend a CERT orientation, scheduled one to two weeks before the start of the CERT academy.
Those selected to participate in the CERT program must complete a Live Scan (background check) and medical evaluation signed by a doctor.
The next CERT orientation (mandatory to be considered for CERT training selection) is scheduled for January 6, 2014 at 6:30 pm at the Carlsbad Safety Training Center, 5750 Orion Street.
Please visit the City of Carlsbad Volunteer Web page and sign up for the next CERT orientation.
