(ARECC Level 1)
Short notice, but this is a good class, and vital for emergency
communicators. Please try to attend, if possible. Last chance to take
the class, and then get reimbursed if you pass the test! This one is
expensive, so I recommend taking it this time around.
Would love to hear you all on the CERT Net, Wednesday nights at 8:00
p.m. on the 147.105, too!
73 to all,
Life is short, so what are you waiting for?!
