Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Registration

 CERT Red                 CERT Green

Community Emergency Response Team training is offered, at no cost, to residents at least 18 years of age. CERT training involves basic disaster response skills to assist those in need during an emergency. 

As COVID-19 continues to limit in-person meetings and trainings, the VCFD has created a hybrid CERT course which is completed in two phases:  online learning and practical training, in-person.


  • 12 hours of online learning at your convenience.
  • 16 hours of practical training scheduled after the online course is completed.
  • When both phases of training are finished, participants receive a Certificate of Completion.
  • Participants will receive a CERT backpack, including personal protective equipment such as, helmet, vest, goggles, gloves, and flashlight. 

Registration for the course is now open!  Click here for the direct link to CERT Camarillo Registration page.
