  • TEEX emphasizes safety and health while providing training in new, creative ways

Update April 30, 2020 (10:15 a.m. CDT):

On May 1, TEEX will continue following social distancing guidelines and operating with essential personnel on-site. We will continue to maintain social distancing policies in and around our facilities. Even while working remotely, our employees are here to assist you with any training questions you may have. And I am proud to announce that several of our courses are now available in a live online instructor-led training format.

Update March 30, 2020 (3 p.m. CDT):

At this time, TEEX is following the national social distancing guidelines, which have been extended through April 30. We are operating with just essential personnel onsite, maintaining social distance in and around our facilities, and continuing our enhanced cleaning and personal hygiene. Most of our employees are working remotely but are still available to our customers. We are working to reschedule some classes or offer them in an online format where possible. If you are enrolled in a class during April, you will be contacted regarding the status of your class.

Additionally, the State of Texas has called on TEEX because of our experience in emergency preparedness and management. TEEX is assisting with operational support across the state in response to COVID-19, and we are working with the Texas Division of Emergency Management at the State Operations Center in Austin to identify specific needs and matching those with skills our Agency is able to provide.

Update March 24, 2020:

Due to recent shelter-in-place orders, classes scheduled in Bryan-College Station between March 24, 2020, at 9 p.m. through April 8, 2020, at 7 a.m. will be either canceled or rescheduled. If future shelter-in-place orders are released or updated in any region where we are scheduled to provide training, courses will be adjusted to follow the orders of that particular region. As always, Stay Safe and Stay Healthy.

COLLEGE STATION (March 20, 2020) – The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) has notified students and customers of its commitment to their health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic by implementing processes and procedures consistent with federal, state and Texas A&M University System guidelines.

In an update on March 20, 2020, TEEX Director David Coatney reported that, whenever possible, training will be delivered by alternate methods to allow online attendance and all face-to-face classes and meetings will be limited to 10 or fewer people to allow social distancing through April 3.

He added that individuals currently registered for courses will be contacted about their class status, and customer service representatives and points of contact for specific classes will be available to answer questions by phone, email or video conferencing.

Coatney also emphasized the agency’s commitment to protecting the health and safety of employees and their families. Non-essential business travel has been restricted until May 31.

This was a fantastic class. I learned several new things every day that were directly applicable to my job function. Everything we covered was highly relevant.
