ISMETT contributes to the development of the Regional Health Care System through the dissemination of UPMC know-how, and serves as a point of reference on a regional and national level with its training and continuing education courses for external operators. Provided with an education department, in 2009 ISMETT received the UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 Certificate of Compliance with Quality Management Systems Regulations. The institute is also accredited as a national CME provider.

Over 2,000 people from other hospitals and universities have been trained at ISMETT in the last few years. This figure does not include external operators who took training courses and were then hired by ISMETT. Approximately 80% of the trainees come from Sicilian universities and hospitals.

ISMETT also offers university students, fellows, physicians, and non-medical post-graduate students the opportunity to do an internship at the institute, and designs customized training programs together with the applicants, providing them with a project supervisor. In the last two years, ISMETT has offered about 400 internships.
