Individual TEMS Endorsement

This may be obtained by completing a Provider Upgrade Application from an individual's E-Licensing account.  You will need a letter from the TEMS Service Director identifying you as being affiliated with their service.  After you obtain the TEMS endorsement you will then need to complete a Local Credential Agreement (LCA) for that TEMS service.  After the Service Director and Medical Director for the TEMS service approve the LCA you will be added to their roster.
