Two of the greatest needs facing us right now are the need for those trained in site assessment and in hosting incoming ERT teams.

To meet this need we are offering two 200-level classes, which will equip you for both of these tasks:

  • Assessing damage to homes and input those needing help into our online database (Site Assessment)
  • Assisting in hosting incoming ERTs, either in their local church or in a church in their area (On-Site Management)

These two 200-level classes will begin at 8:30 AM and conclude at the end of a working lunch. 

Participating in these classes will qualify as your ERT recertification.

Non-ERTs may take these classes if they wish to assist our response efforts in the above ways, but they will not receive ERT certification.

In order for those who have never taken ERT to be certified, they must take the ERT Basic Training. An ERT Basic class will be offered at 8:30 and will conclude by approximately 3:00 PM.
