Course Completion Requirements
- Provide a suitable emergency
vehicle in excellent working condition. It is recommended that each participant
bring a vehicle to maximize driving time towards achieving successful course
completion. If an agency needs participants to share a vehicle, submit the
written request to TEEX 14 days before the start of the class.
- Vehicle must be equipped with heavy-duty suspension and be in good mechanical condition.
- Two spare tires are required during driving exercises. Seriously worn tires are considered hazardous and may not be allowed during exercises.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
