This self-study course takes about 60 minutes to complete and includes a 20-question quiz at the end. The course is available in both English and Spanish.

Upon completion, participants will need to print copies of the course completion certificate and take them to the chapter’s SABA LMS and Disaster Workforce administrators to update training records. This course certificate is not recognized by government health departments.
