I was impressed with the professional knowledge and character that each of the instructors had when we took our class the first time a few years back. We have signed up again 2 times since then and each time Mark and crew come out and give us 100%+. The playful banter between the instructors (esp Mark and Emily) shows that they love what they are doing and are not being forced or upset to be there. They are organized, responsible and present themselves in a professional manner. I highly recommend this program to everyone! www.facebook.com/groups/MIDAMERICATEENCERT/

Thank you so much for providing the Teen CERT training to our troop. They had a great time and came home with more scout spirit than any other event. Again, thank you and your staff and the many volunteers who supported this extraordinary experience.

The culminating simulation was such an amazing experience for my son and myself. It brought awe and tears. Every detail was there. My son left saying how he thought that might be something he'd like to do. If nothing else, my son has an eye and heart into this very real threat. I am thankful for you, your group and boy scouts for teaching my son some of the sensitivities to our lives.

I would like to take a moment to thank you for such a wonderful training experience. I had a group of 9 scouts, with 6 being in their first year of scouting. They had a great and memorable time by the smiles that were on their faces as they came back to the campsite after the disaster drill. My sons were fighting over who would be the first to tell their father about the weekend as we came home.

I took the training a year ago and still think about everything I learned. The instructors and program are terrific. I learned more valuable information from Emily, Mark and LaFaye over that weekend and I did in a semester at school. Great class and highly recommended for anyone at any age!

During my training with Teen CERT, I was given the opportunity to grow as a leader. I look forward to assisting my community with any disasters that may occur. This organization is top-notch, and the instructors are very knowledgeable.

Teen CERT is a wonderful and helpful program. I learned a lot about emergency management and emergency medical training by the best instructor, Mark. Since my training, I have volunteered as a "victim" in the disaster drills they conduct and continue to learn as I go! Overall a great program that should be offered everywhere!
