“I really enjoyed the course with AlcoDigital. I was attending with little knowledge of drug and alcohol testing, hoping to review our current policy and find ways to implement a successful process. It was very helpful to have other businesses there to discuss different takes on testing across different industries, share best practices and experiences. Our trainer Claire, was really insightful and made the course absolutely brilliant. The course content was interesting and easily retainable due to the delivery, the supporting documents have proved incredibly helpful in achieving my aims. I’d highly recommend AlcoDigital and will certainly be using them in the future.”
-Meg Lever, CPL Industries
“The course was really informative and well run. The course highlighted that drink and drugs is a concern for many organisations however there is a real challenge around HR/ employee rights which discourage businesses from implementing a really proactive/preventative policy.
It is clear that the alcohol policy is the easier of the two policies to implement however based on today’s culture, drugs would be the biggest concern, yet the process of testing and ensuring accuracy and fair testing is challenging.
The course opened my eyes to the risk involved in allowing a workforce to work with both substances in their system not just behind the wheel of a vehicle but also the errors that can be made in an office environment which can lead to £’s lost.

The Chain of Custody process for collecting an Oral Fluid drug sample is the most important part of your in-house company testing procedure. Why? Because it provides a legally defensible test result, to back up any disciplinary procedure.
Incorrectly completed forms slow down the process and can sometimes render the test invalid. Inexperienced collecting officers can delay the collection process, meaning they lack confidence when taking an evidential saliva sample.
This course will cover:
- Importance of Chain of Custody standards.
- Best Practice Procedure.
- Practical experience with the step-by-step Chain of Custody process
- Assessment test for certification
