PA Prepared LMS

PEMA PA Prepared LMS PA Department of Health

The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and the Pennsylvania Department of Health have partnered with CentreLearn to facilitate Commonwealth-sponsored training for emergency response personnel throughout Pennsylvania. The PA Prepared Learning Management System is the web-based tool used for registering response personnel for online and resident training, tracking student progress, accepting student feedback, and providing the student with a certificate once the sponsored training has been successfully completed.

Note: Training that is offered through organizations, agencies, or governments that do not participate in the PA Prepared LMS is not maintained through this system.
