The EHS trainings below are free and available to UMass faculty, staff and students. Many of the trainings are required as part of Lab, Fire, and Construction Safety Programs.
Please note that a Net ID is required to access trainings in SciShield and OWL. It is important to be aware that some online courses are available in SciSchield while others are in OWL. All lab personnel must complete the SciSchield versions of the trainings.
Please note that your SPIRE information is provided to SciShield, so your UMass Net ID must be used as your primary email address in SPIRE for the training information to be successfully synced with other platforms like CORUM and Kuali. If you receive training non-compliance messages from those platforms when your trainings are current, please check that your SPIRE information is correct.
Individuals who are not part of the UMass community must have a NENS setup for them to be able to access the trainings. Please keep in mind that it may take up to a week for the NENS to appear on SPIRE before it is synchronized with SciShield or OWL. If you encounter any difficulties setting up the NENS, please do not hesitate to contact OIT at 413-545-9400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is important to note that in the event of your password expiring, access to SciShield and OWL for training purposes will not be possible. Nevertheless, you will still have access to other University services such as email.
