Future CERT training information:
Denver CERT Program will also be having a CERT Train The Trainer (TTT) Course on weekends and evening hours for people who work and can’t make the weekday course.  It will be in May 2012 and information will be out in late January.

During the Denver CERT TTT program they will be working with the trainers to help build a program within their community, business and faith based organizations. This class will be the beginning of a growing process. As a Program Manager, Denver will be there to help you create your CERT program for your organization and make it a successful one. Denver will be asking its participants to have the same  prerequisites as the state program has to maintain continuity in Colorado.
