CERPT Manual




We have recently started doing something we have never tried before. We are now offering folks the option of taking the first two days of our 3-day classes at a reduced cost and then allowing them to take the night shoot and the 3rd day if they decide to at the end of their class. We recently tried it in Washington and again in New Mexico and it seems to work pretty smoothly. I don't know why we haven't offered it before. This works great for those that might be crunched for time or money or maybe they are just not quite ready to commit to the full class yet.


Our CERPT manuals are finally ready! The Community Emergency Response and Preparedness Training manual is finished and is available on our online store. We are still waiting on the binding but they should be ready to ship soon!
