Training Pathway: Physical Response
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT+) with Spiritual Enhancements
Dear ADRN CERT Trained Volunteer,
RE: New 2018 CERT Badge Expiration Policy
Thank you for your heart to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of survivors of disaster. Our goal is to have a well trained CERT Team (Community Emergency Response Team), refreshed and prepared in CERT Training, who is confident and ready to respond at any given time.
ADRN has implemented a new three-year expiration program for our badge certification process. This program insures that those deploying to the field are the most qualified and proficient in how we want to serve. In doing so, our CERT trained volunteers will maintain credibility with other CERT response programs, local agencies and authorities. We request that all volunteers review their current CERT status and make necessary adjustments in order to meet the standards of re-certification.
The best time to get prepared is before a disaster strikes! For your convenience you can do all the steps right here today! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org when you've completed all the re-certification steps below so we can mail you a new ADRN badge; and you will be completely ready to deploy. Refreshing your training today will keep you prepared, confident and ready to respond. Thank you again for your heart to be prepared and ready to serve. If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
Procedures to re-certify:
- Complete a new Background Check
- Sign Confidentiality Agreement Form
- Sign a new ADRN Statement of Faith
- Complete the FEMA IS-317 Introduction to CERT course
Once you complete the above steps, a new white ADRN badge will be mailed to you.
