On-site Drug & Alcohol Training

We can provide training for your employees at your site or chosen location. We currently offer two types of training courses:

  • Alcohol and Drug Testing in the Workplace; includes policy and best practice procedure advice as well as product training
  • Product specific, in-house testing; this is competency based equipment training for staff testing employees in-house

Alcohol & Drug Testing in the WorkplaceCPD Accreditation

This is a one day classroom based training course that can be run specifically for your company at your chosen location.

The training course is CPD accredited and is 7 hours long.

It covers the following topics and can be adapted to suit your company drug & alcohol policy or specific requirements of your business.

Alcohol in the Workplace

What to include in your company drug & alcohol policy, including best practice for drug and alcohol testing in-house.

Illegal Drugs

The most commonly taken illegal drugs and how they can affect your staff – and those around them.

Prescription Medication

How to implement a best practice procedure towards prescription drugs within your company drug & alcohol policy, whilst encouraging employees to notify you of new medication.

Drug Testing Methods 

The best methods of testing for both illegal and prescription drugs in the workplace, in-line with your drug & alcohol policy.


Introduction to the best available drug & alcohol screening and testing equipment, including Dräger breathalysers and drug test kits, with hands-on equipment training. We’ll also train you on how to take a saliva sample for a laboratory confirmation test, following a positive drug screening.

Drug Testing Procedures 

Pre-employment, random, for cause – and how to implement them.

Our alcohol & drug testing training days are beneficial to companies that don’t currently have an alcohol or drug testing procedure in place. It doesn’t matter if you have a policy already as the course is very useful for reviewing and adapting as required.

If you have a better idea of what equipment you will use to implement drug and alcohol testing in-house, then it is sometimes possible to condense this course down to half a day (around 4.5 hours) but this would only be for a maximum 6 people. We could also perform two training days in one day for you, if required, to train up to 12 people.

Alternatively, if you only require part of the training course (alcohol testing or drug testing) then this can be done over half a day.


Full day training – £1,500 (max 10 people, or two sessions of 6)

Half day training – £850 (max 6 people)

If you don’t need so many people trained, then you may like to look into our UK wide drug & alcohol training days, priced from £99 per person.
