Prince William County, Va. ARES®/RACES

Including the Independent Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park

Consolidated Training Requirements

These courses are required by both the Commonwealth of Virginia, as well as Prince William County. You only need to take the course once for each major number. Upon completion of any of these courses, please send a copy of the certificate to the Emergency Coordinator for the files. Additional course may be added as available or required. If you find a bad/changed link, please forward the information to the EC.

Along with the FEMA and County training below, each ARES member is expected to attend at least three training sessions per year. Approved training sessions appear on the calendar of events. Additional training may be approved by the Emergency Coordinator.

Note that due to COVID, most of the in-person classes have not been held for more than two years. Hopefully 2022 will see a return to some in-person classes.

Federal/County/City Requirements

All members
