The FEMA Region 2 National Preparedness Division is partnering with the State of California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), and the National CERT Association (NCA) to host a webinar on the FEMA Resource Typing for CERT, released in August 2021.
FEMA has released National Qualification System (NQS) Job Titles/Position Qualifications and Position Task Books (PTBs) for three CERT positions include:
CERT Team Leader - a volunteer part of a CERT who directs team activities
CERT Chief - a volunteer who is responsible for a specific functional area within the CERT
CERT Volunteer - a volunteer who is a part of a CERT and trains in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations
During the first part of the webinar, the FEMA CERT Office will give an overview of the Resource Typing for CERT, guidance from FEMA on implementation, and answer questions.
During the second part of the webinar, the National CERT Association will share how it will be supporting this effort by implementing credentialing lookup through the NCA Member ID card and establishing a national CERT Resource Typing workgroup.
Who Should Attend? State and Local Government, CERT Sponsoring Agencies, CERT Program Managers, Volunteer Coordinators and CERT Team Leaders.
