The focus of CERTCON 2018 is about “Learning for Life”, with the goal to expose each attendee to opportunities to refresh their CERT skills and techniques. Over the course of two days, an elective schedule of classroom presentations, demonstrations, workshops and hands-on sessions will allow participants to return home to their neighborhoods, businesses and CERT teams with a customized experience of refreshed skills.
CERTCON 2018 is scheduled for Saturday, June 23 2018 from 8 AM – 4:30 PM and Sunday, June 24 2018 from 9 AM – 3 PM.
On Saturday, CERTCON will be held at at the Germantown Campus of Montgomery College (http://cms.montgomerycollege.edu) and Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the Montgomery Fire and Rescue Public Safety Training Academy (PSTA) (https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/mcfrs-psta/)
All CERTs are invited to attend, and we especially encourage CERTs from mid-Atlantic region to seize the opportunity to enhance our knowledge and skills sets, as well as a chance to be exposed to new and different techniques and tools. This CERTCON’s objective is to carry these CERT skills with you as you “learn for life”.
