Boasting one of the most accurate results when testing for the recent presence of drug metabolites in a donor’s system, saliva has grown in popularity as a mode of drug testing. This is particularly true for employers operating in states where Medical Marijuana has been legalized. Even some employers who utilize urine drug testing for pre-employment testing are also now adopting saliva testing for random and post-accident testing purposes. This course is designed to prepare instructors to train new oral fluid specimen collectors in accordance with strict chain of custody protocols for drug testing. Note that instructors interested in training others to test alcohol using saliva or breath should consider the DOT BAT Train-the-Trainer Course instead.
Why enroll in the Saliva/Oral Fluid Specimen Collector Train-the-Trainer?
- Receive extensive training on saliva collection chain of custody protocols for both collect-only laboratory tests and instant, preliminary results screening
- Train new collectors for saliva/oral fluid specimen collection
- Conduct saliva/oral fluid five year refresher training
- Conduct Error Correction Training for saliva/oral fluid collectors who receive fatal flaws
Note that in some instances saliva testing is prohibited as a testing modality under state law for workplace testing or additional licensing or permitting acquired through state agencies may be required prior to conducting saliva/oral fluid tests.
