AAACERT requires its members to be NIMS compliant (successful completion of FEMA classes -- IS-100, IS-200, IS-700, and IS-800). These free, on-line classes can be accessed below. IS-100 and IS-700 are pre-requisites for taking our Basic CERT class. A FEMA Student ID (FEMA SID) is required to take the classes and can be obtained at the FEMA training website.
