Matthews Fire & EMS strives to provide the best service by providing its members with thorough training throughout the year. Headed by the Recruitment & Training Captain, the Training Division provides NC Firefighter training, in-house fire & rescue training, as well as NC EMT continuing education through Central Piedmont Community College instructors.

- EMS continuing education is held at Station 1 the first Wednesday of each month at 9:00 AM and the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 PM. (Central Piedmont does not conduct Con-Ed in July or December.)

- Departmental fire training is held throughout the month by the on-duty shifts.
