Over the winter break, 6 USF CERT members participated in a CERT Train-The-Trainer course to grow our training team. With this class graduating, USF CERT will have a team of 7 certified CERT Instructors ready to train students, staff, and the community in the CERT Basic Training course.
Training took place over 4 days at the Hillsborough County Emergency Operations Center, where a team of two instructors, one being our own Program Manager, Elizabeth Dunn, trained CERT Members in techniques for teaching future classes.
We would like to congratulate the new class of CERT Instructors on completing their training, and look forward to seeing them build their teams!
