International SOS has a suite of high-quality multimedia safety and security trainings available to all traveling on behalf of UMB. 

Accessing the trainings is quick and easy! Please follow these steps to start learning:

  • Travel Awareness- High Risk (25 minutes)- for those traveling to high or extreme travel risk destinations

In-Person Learning Opportunities

The Office of Emergency Management offers a number of high-quality, in-person learning opportunities. In particular, we recommend that travelers to high or extreme travel risk destinations consider taking the Stop the Bleed and Citizen's Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) courses.
