Strong to Serve
The Air Land Emergency Resource Team is a 3-phase Christian discipleship and service program that trains young men to meet needs in times of crisis. Beginning with 9 weeks of boot camp, ALERT equips men with discipline, character, and career skills they can use to serve others and lead their families at the same time. With this mindset, ALERT men are ready to influence their world for Christ.
Phase I: Basic Training
Who are you, beneath the surface? What’s holding you back from becoming the man God created you to be? It’s time to do battle. We’ve infused the most rigorous physical elements of a traditional military boot camp with an intensely Christ-focused motivation that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. ALERT Basic Training is where you lay aside every weight, face your fears, and overcome your weaknesses. You’ll get to know God on a deeper level, and you’ll conquer greater challenges than you ever thought possible. But don’t stop here. This is just the beginning.
Phase II: Emergency Response Training
More than 200 million people worldwide are affected by natural disasters annually; when catastrophe strikes your community, will you be ready to serve? With training and certifications in a range of emergency response skills, ERT will prepare you to respond to any crisis. Practical scenarios, service deployments, classroom instruction and Biblical discipleship come together in this phase to arm you with a total readiness that is truly one-of-a-kind. Where will you be after the storm?
Phase III: Advanced Training
God calls men not only to serve the people around them, but to provide for their families, and Advanced Training equips you for both. With the foundation of Phases I and II in place, you’ll be ready to earn a state or national certification in the field of your choice, so you can serve others and put bread on the table at the same time. Men who complete 31 weeks of Advanced Training in one or more of our 11 courses are eligible for ALERT graduation and induction into the Eagle Response Unit.
