In the coming year we will be expanding and adding to our training, several new training sections.
We will also be asking our Residential “CERT” Managers, if they want to join our newest disaster preparedness training that we named, Residential Manager Emergency Response Team, aka RMERT.
As noted, several members that went through the old Residential “CERT” Manager course, decided to take the new one, and were surprised on how different, more educational, and more hands on this was, versus the old CERT course. In addition, when you now compare the new RMERT course against the FEMA & NYC CERT course, we are totally outside the box. CERT is for community districts, and RMERT is strictly for you the Residential Manager, your staff, and your buildings, and what may impact them, based on what's happening in the world, US and here..
For those that wish to transfer, there will be a fee for taking the newest courses, that will be given to our new outside professional instructors. If not, they still will be active members of Battery Park City CERT, the original training organization.
