CERT Training Fall 2019

In the event of a natural disaster, it could take several days for public safety personnel to respond to individual homes, making it important to learn emergency basics so you can be as self-sufficient as possible. Get prepared by enrolling in the West Jordan Fire Department's two-day (12-hour) Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. This CERT course is for individuals (age 18 and over) who live, work or own businesses in West Jordan who would like to be trained on what to do in case of natural disaster or other emergency.


The course requires completion of an online course prior to attending the hands-on class. The hands-on portion is taught by West Jordan firefighters and other local professionals. You will learn about Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Medical, Fire Suppression, and Search and Rescue. The online self-study portion takes about 6 hours to complete. You must complete both the two-day hands-on class as well as the online course in order to receive certification. Class size is limited to 18 students who are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis according to completion of full registration and payment. If the minimum number of 9 students is not met, the class will be postponed until the next course. Classes are typically offered twice a year, in spring and fall.
