The Metro and North Central districts will be hosting two identical ERT training events in October. Both events – October 2 at Button Memorial UMC in Little Elm and October 23 at Hamilton Park UMC in Dallas – will be open to those wanting to attend the Basic Training for the first time to be certified as ERTs and for those who have previously been trained and certified who need to go through the re-certification process. Each event is open to anyone interested in this ministry, regardless of district residence.
Starting at 9:00 a.m., the Basic Training track will last five hours; the re-certification track will last three hours. Lunch is included for both tracks. The cost for participants will be $20 and will include: printed materials, a T-shirt, snacks, and lunch.
