Regional Training Calendar

Peninsulas EMS Council is the “go to” source for information on EMS training and education throughout the region!

Whether hosted by PEMS, our sister regional councils, or produced by our agency and health system partners, PEMS is the central repository in the region for training information.

If your organization is providing training and you would like to make that training available to others, please let us know below and we will post it to the Regional Training Calendar.
