CERT Program

Active members of the club are eligible to enroll in our certification program, which allows members to design, build, and launch their very own high powered rockets. This coincides with the certification process in the amateur rocketry association, Tripoli. To launch high powered rockets, one must first be a member of the rocketry association Tripoli or NAR, then build and successfully launch and recover a rocket using a high powered motor. Upon completion, they will advance to a certification level of 1, 2, or 3. These three levels enable members to purchase and launch larger motors that are not available to the general public. Through our certification program, the club provides all the materials and guidance to build a certification rocket, which can otherwise be quite expensive. We also pay for the motor for your first attempt. For more information on the Level 1 certification process, you can visit Tripoli below.
