Drug and Alcohol Testing Course

Our nationally accredited Drug and Alcohol Testing training course is a nationally accredited course designed to train people in how to conduct drug and alcohol testing. This course will enable students to understand how to complete Drug and Alcohol testing in the workplace in a safe, legal and ethical manner.

It is a requirement for anyone collecting urine or oral fluid samples to meet Australian Standards and to be trained as a collector per AS/NZS 4308:2008, AS 4760:2019, and AS 3547:2019.

The structure of your course includes:

  • Outline the responsibilities of a collector and the employee
  • Detail best practice principles to ensure privacy and confidentiality
  • Duty of care, provision of information, fairness, and gender and cultural sensitivity
  • Plan & conduct appropriate testing activities
  • Respectful communication about testing activities & outcomes
  • Respond effectively to testing challenges including positive test results
  • Providing testing in remote locations, dealing with refusal, or failure to undergo testing

For the online course, participants are required to have a method of recording themselves. As part of the assessment conditions for this course, participants will need three (3) different ‘clients’ to test. These can be roleplayed by family, friends or colleagues, but three different people must be tested.
