2023 Skills Competition

The 2023 CERT Skills Competition is where CERT members test their CERT knowledge and skills. It is a timed competition with ten (10) stations. Completing one 10-station evolution takes approximately 3.5 hours. We are conducting a total of five rotations over three days. During each evolution, teams must complete the tasks at each station using the skills and expertise gained in their CERT training, activations, and exercises.
Evaluators will be on hand to judge the use of CERT Forms, organization, and technical skills.  Additionally, this CERT exercise will also be participating in the new FEMA Task Book sign-off program. If you are trying to get your resource typing complete, our evaluators will be able to get your Type III sign offs completed during the session.  Below is a table showing the session schedule:
