Please see our “CALENDAR OF EVENTS” page for more information about upcoming programs.

We will also custom-tailor specialty training programs (for example, Tactical Combat Casualty Care) for EMS, fire, and law enforcement agencies. Please “CONTACT US” for more information.
All courses are provided free of charge to EMS, fire, and law enforcement personnel (small materials fees may apply to certain programs).


In recognition of the essential partnership between our EMS service and our Medical Center and Medical School, UMass Memorial EMS works closely with the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) Center of Excellence in Emergency Preparedness Training (CEEPET) to deliver education to first responders as well as to first receivers in the clinical setting. CEEPET offers several cutting edge learning opportunities throughout the year in hazardous materials (HAZMAT) awareness and operations, as well as other disaster-related topics.
