Payment Info

Effective November 1, 2020 TEEX will require participants to pay a $75 application fee for all classes that start after January 1, 2021 for the EMS Training Academy.

I was sent to St. Bernard Parish, LA., as the incident commander for 16 days following Hurricane Katrina. The training I received from TEEX was priceless. All of the areas covered in the program rang true in the command structure.
