Disaster Relief Training
NC Baptists on Mission Disaster Relief Training is available to all believers who have a passion to serve others. Disaster response is a unique mission experience because of the sudden nature of the event, difficult conditions, and high expectations from other relief organizations and survivors. We hope you desire to serve God in this type of ministry and that you fulfill that desire through NC Baptists on Mission Disaster Relief.

regional Training Opportunities
You will notice some changes to the classes we now offer at Regional Training. All classes at Regional Training are now considered basic and require no pre-requisites except Assessment and Crew Chief, which requires Recovery; and Forklift, which requires logistics, recovery or feeding. Please contact the Baptists on Mission office for assistance - 800.395.5102 x 5606.
Training is valid for three years. If you need to recertify in Feeding, Recovery, Assessment or Shower and Laundry and you have served on a disaster relief deployment in that ministry you may recertify online. You must recertify within the year that your badge expires for a specific ministry. As a part of the online recertification you will need to get a current background check and watch a short video. Click HERE to begin your online recertification for the classes mentioned above. After completing these two steps you will be mailed a new badge. The cost for online recertification is $20. If you do not wish to recertify online you are welcome to attend one of the regional trainings listed below and take the class again. Click on the detail/register button to choose your location.
Due to the many changes in all other ministries, you will need to attend one of the regional trainings in person or virtually to recertify for the following: Childcare, Logistics, Chaplaincy, Administration, Communications, Crew Chief, Forklift, International Search and Rescue, Maintenance, Recover Trailer/Equipment Manager and Medical Reserve Corps as they do NOT offer on line video recertification at this time.
Opportunities are below on how to train virtually or in person for 2021. For the Spring trainings, some of the trainings will be virtual and some will be in person. Please pay careful attention to the following information:
