This message is being forwarded to my friends who are part of Neighborhood Associations, block clubs, neighborhood councils, and so on. I am happy to announce that Community Emergency Response Team Training is back. We have our first class taking place in our Palms area of the city.
I know many of you have members of your team (or maybe even you) who want to take this training. See below and sign up...quickly. Seating is highly limited and I know we will fill up fast.
If there are any questions, please feel free to let me know.

I am happy to announce that the FIRST IN-PERSON CERT Basic Training Class will be taking place right here in Battalion 18. It's being conducted out the same location where the very LAST in-person class was held prior to COVID-19, the Iman Center in Palms.
The class will begin on April 7 and continue every THURSDAY NIGHT FROM 630-9P / 1830-2100 Hours. Classes will conclude on May 19, 2022. Please note that the following weekend, a mapping exercise is planned for the Westside Village area which will allow our new graduates to get some time applying their new skills. More is to come on that later.
Seating in the class is limited as we are still observing social distancing procedures which is a prudent thing. This is a class which has been greatly anticipated for a long time. I ask that previously CERT trained members REFRAIN from signing up for this class. We'd like to leave it for folks especially those coming through our NTP program to take. Previously trained members will have the opportunity as more classes open up down the line. Also, our previously trained members SHOULD be taking advantage of the in-person opportunities such as the monthly pop-ups to sharpen skills. Additionally, PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP FOR THE CLASS IF YOU INTEND TO ATTEND FOR THE FULL DURATION. Again, seating is limited and it is a shame to have seats go empty because folks decided NOT to continue for whatever reason. Just sayin'.
This is a momentous occasion for us and we are very happy to be hosting this first class. If there are any questions, please feel free to let us know. To sign up for the class, use this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lafd-cert-iman-cultural-center-tickets-82852489025
