Talk to Tina (tbow@tetc-env.net) 903-695-0288 to check on instructor availability and special training requests.

3. My state requires renewal hours to retain my license; does TETC provide a certificate to document their courses?  Yes, we provide a simple attendance document at the course and mail a more formal certificate.

4. Why have I not received the mailed certificate?  TETC sends the course certificates within four weeks. If the course has been paid for please call us (903) 695-0288 or email us at info@tetc-env.net and we will straighten it out a quickly as possible.
