The first set of new content for CERT PDR include a series of supplemental training webinars for the CERT Program Manager Course. These webinars will cover a lot of the content in the course as well as additional content that are useful for CERT Program Managers.
Below is a list of the webinars currently planned for the Program Manager series (not listed in the order of delivery). The first webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 and will continue every other Wednesday (as content is available).
Instructors and Presenters for the webinar series are part of the National CERT Association CERT Program Manager and Train-the-Trainer Courses Workgroup and have been vetted by their State and Territory CERT Coordinators.
The CERT Program Manager Supplemental Training Webinars Series is hosted by FEMA Region IX in partnership with the National CERT Association.
Webinar information for the CERT Program Manager Supplemental Training Webinars Series will be sent to State and Territory CERT Leads and FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Division (ICPD) staff to share within their CERT Network. National CERT Association Members that have been vetted for CERT Program Manager/Coordinator and CERT permissions will receive the webinar info as they are scheduled.
The NCA has partnered with Merit (https://www.merits.com) to create a system to allow participants to take a post-test after each webinar and receive a digital badge as a verification of completion.
The webinars will be recorded and archived on the National CERT Association Member’s Portal and will be available for NCA members with the appropriate permissions.
