TEMI Certificates

It is with honor and respect that TEMI awards certificates to the fine teachers who make the professional investment to attend our four-tier TEMI seminars and complete their requirements and activities. (Some teachers enjoy them so much that they return to attend the same seminar two or three times as a refresher.) Upon completion of each seminar, teachers develop confidence and know-how to elevate their credentials to the next level.
