Drug & Alcohol Training Courses

We hold our CPD Accredited Alcohol and Drug Testing in the Workplace training course at various locations across the UK.

Courses are run in small groups to enable plenty of opportunity for engagement and practical demonstrations in a workshop type format. The course is split into two parts and takes up to 7 hours; the morning session covers Alcohol Testing in the Workplace and the afternoon covers Drug Testing.  You are able to attend either one or both sessions as required.

Who should attend?

Employees at companies who find themselves at various different stages of implementing alcohol and drug testing; our course is suitable for Health & Safety Officers, Occupational Health Workers, Transport Managers, Fleet Managers, HR Managers, Operations Managers, SHEQ/QEHS Coordinators, Company Directors and most job roles related to health, safety and wellbeing.

The course will suit you if you are at any of the following stages:

  • No current alcohol and drug policy but are looking to introduce one
  • A current policy but want to review it and introduce drug and alcohol testing
  • Unsure whether you want to implement in-house testing or out-source to an external drug and alcohol testing service
  • Already do in-house alcohol and/or drug testing but want to review current procedure and equipment
  • Already use alcohol and drug testing equipment but only require one or two people in the company trained up on the equipment – therefore on-site training unsuitable
  • Your are/want to be a provider of alcohol and drug testing services

It is always recommended that you review your current drug and alcohol policy and procedures on a regular basis.

If you are in the early stages of introducing a policy, you will receive up-to-date information on legislation and the best steps to apply alcohol and drug testing. If you are in the latter stages, then you can review your current policy and ensure you are complying with best practice procedures. For our existing customers who already have everything in place but just need a few more people trained, then this course provides a cost-effective solution.
