Students rotate through various skills stations in which they practice and implement the course teachings over the previous eight weeks, and then students participate in a “mock earthquake” drill.

Pay attention to the protocols set in place and instructions given by instructors and trainers to keep you, and your fellow CERTs, safe.  At the end of the hands-on exercises, there is a graduation celebration for students who have completed their training.
