Training for new members is held in the Fall semester after the Activities Fair / Involvement Week. Please look for us at these events if you are interested in joining—members will be there to give you upcoming training dates, put you on our mailing list, and answer your questions in realtime.

In order to join you must attend a New Member Training session. We are currently working on plans for delivering training consistent with virtual and social distancing requirements. Further details will be provided to new members after acceptance. Training includes:

  • Internal training: to learn how the organization works
  • CPR (American Heart Association Healthcare Provider)
  • Practical skills sessions: to teach you the skills you need to get started and familiarize you with equipment

Prior experience with EMS is valued, and all members are encouraged to progress through the organization at their own pace. However, no matter what certifications you have, you MUST attend internal training and the practical skills sessions. It is important that you understand how the organization works and are familiar with equipment and medical procedures.

Email info@cmuems.org with questions regarding training for new members.

After training, you'll be ready to go on duty.
