What is a TEI (Training and Educational Institute)?

A TEI is an organization that is certified by the Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services to teach future and present EMS providers. TEI s are certified by KBEMS to teach continuing education courses, or courses to certify/license individuals at the levels certified or licensed by KBEMS (Emergency Medical Responder, Emergency Medical Technician, Advanced Emergency Medical Technician, and Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic).
