      Burbank Summer/Fall 2019 CERT Class

      Description Learn basic disaster response skills : Fire Safety, Light Search and Rescue, Team Organisation and Disaster Medical Operations. CERT training provides you with basic skills that will help prepare you and your family after an emergency. The Burbank Fire Department will be conducting Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The training is taught in 8 modules over four Saturdays, the dates are: Saturday September 14th (9:00 AM to 4:30 PM), Saturday September 21st (9:30 AM to 4:30 PM), Saturday October 5th (9:30 AM to 4:30 PM) and October 12th (9:30 AM to 4:30 PM). Attendance at all 8 modules (all 4 days) is required to complete the class; however, if you miss any modules due to life's hectic schedule, you can make up any missed modules in future Burbank CERT classes. There is a $50 partially refundable fee for the class. This fee covers the expense of the CERT backpack (with starter equipment), Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), some basic gear and a CERT manual; all of which are yours to keep at the end of the class. Upon successful completion of the Burbank CERT class, the graduate are eligible to receive a $25 partial refund of their fee. If the graduate goes on to become a registered Disaster Services Worker Volunteer (DSWV) by joining the Burbank Fire Corps Program (www.burbankfirecorps.org), they are eligible to receive an additional $25 partial refund. For additional information regarding the partial refund or missing class dates, please scroll down to our question and answer area. Uncertain if you can attend, walk-ins are welcome to register the first day of class at 9:00 AM on a first come - first served basis while space is available (please note only cash or check payments can be processed for walk-in and pay at the door options). Q: $25 refund for successful completion? Cool! But what is a “successful” completion? A: To be eligible for the $25 partial refund, the student must successfully attend and complete all modules of that particular contiguous CERT class. Students that miss any module can make up that module in a future class and receive their certificate of completion, but will not be eligible for the partial refund. Applications for partial refund must be submitted in person on the final day of class. Q: I can already tell I’m going to be a big volunteer! How do I get the second $25 refund? A: Graduates that are eligible to become registered Disaster Services Worker Volunteers and eligible to join the Burbank Fire Corps Volunteer Program (BFCP) must do so within 30 days of completion of the CERT class, and must attend at least one BFCP meeting within 6 months of completion of the CERT class. Those who do, are eligible for an additional $25 partial refund. Applications for partial refund must be submitted in person at a BFCP meeting within 6 months of CERT class graduation. Q: I’m suffering an old knee injury, but CERT seems really cool. Is there any way I can make it through the class? A: Yes. The idea of CERT training is to build preparedness and response capacity in you. While there is definitely a physical aspect to the class, it scales with your own abilities – and it’s one of the reasons we give so much hands-on time in class. Q: If I couldn’t do something because of that knee injury, like victim extrication, am I disqualified from that $25 partial refund for completion? A: No. There are roles for everybody in CERT, including directing those that are untrained. As long as the student has perfect attendance, they qualify for the partial refund. Q: What if I am registered but miss the first day of class? A: You can show up to any of the remaining class dates, you will just need to make up the missed classes during a future Burbank CERT class in order to receive a certificate of completion (note, you will not be eligible for the partial refund). Q: What if I am unable to attend, am I eligible for a class refund? A: If you pre-registered and paid by credit card, you must cancel and request a refund via eventbrite no later than 9:00PM (Pacific) on the last day of ticket sales/registration. We cannot issue refunds past that time. If you paid by credit card and miss the entire series of class dates, and missed the cutoff to cancel and request a refund, your $50 fee will be credited to a future Burbank CERT class which starts within 12 months of the scheduled start date of your class.
