Please note that there is a $25 CERT program fee payable the first day of class. CERT Graduates are sworn in as Disaster Service Worker Volunteers for the City of Walnut Creek. Unfortunately, due to limited resources, Walnut Creek CERT classes are open only to those who live or work in either incorporated or unincorporated Walnut Creek (does not apply in the case of a student from another city making up a missed class). Classes are open to minors 16 or 17 years old with parental/guardian permission - these two signed forms are required at class 1 to participate - parental waiver & Disaster Service Worker registration.

Need to make up a missed class?
You can go to any city's CERT program to make up a class.

Search CERT Programs By ZIP Code - Note that there is a bug in this FEMA web site and zip code 94596 does not show Walnut Creek CERT; 94598 does work properly.
