This course is about working with people that have finished the basic CERT class. A key part is to partner and coordinate with other CERT groups and agencies for advanced training opportunities. The course provides information about how to challenge the basic CERT members and allow them to expand their thirst of knowledge. We will also talk about building a robust and active advanced program by writing job descriptions for lead roles and other critical positions, developing and retaining volunteers through recruitment with incentives. It will also look at the use of CERT members at special events such as parades, community fairs and more.
