Tobacco Marijuana & E-Cigarettes Course (TMEC)
& Impaired Drivering Education Course (IDEC)

What is TMEC?

The Tobacco Marijuana & E-Cigarettes Course (TMEC) is a Health, Safety, & Impaired Driving Educational Program. TMEC was developed by Certified Prevention Specialists in partnership with schools, law enforcement, treatment and medical providers in Oregon to educate youth and adults (ages 13 and above) about the consequences of substance use and impaired driving. TMEC was piloted in collaboration with Redmond School District and High Desert ESD Driver Education Programs in 2016, launched statewide in 2017, revised in 2019, and revamped as an animated video curriculum in 2021.

What’s new?

  • We just updated and released an animated 2021 revision of the 3-hour TMEC curriculum.
  • We also created a 90-minute Impaired Driving Education Course (IDEC)!
  • Instructor training for both programs (a $50 value) is now free for anyone!
