Armed with a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Central Florida, Andrew teamed up with well-known entrepreneur James Timothy White and set out to create one of the largest training companies in the drug testing industry.
When Andrew Easler and James Timothy White founded DrugTestingCourses.com in 2012, their mission was to establish the most credible, responsive, and reliable source for drug and alcohol testing training. To accomplish this mission, DrugTestingCourses.com needed to develop accessible and affordable training courses that both companies and learners alike would be proud of.
After training thousands of students from across the world, we now offer a wide variety of courses related to drug and alcohol testing, state laws, and other courses related to the drug and alcohol testing industry. In March of 2019, our entire course library was published on our custom learning management system, EaslerLMS.
Andrew David Easler combines experience in business and education with expertise in federal and state drug and alcohol testing laws to offer a wide variety of quality courses and services through his company, Easler Education Inc.
Prior to earning his Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Central Florida, Mr. Easler joined the United States Air Force and then later worked in business finance and consulting, assisting companies in the process of incorporation, listing on international exchanges, mergers and acquisitions, and tracking the sale and transfer of stock.
While completing his degree in education, Andrew Easler started a successful fingerprinting and drug and alcohol testing business which grew to several locations across the state before selling it off to focus on education and training.
Andrew specializes in educational technology integration and inter-curricular relationship recognition and utilization. His experience in the drug and alcohol testing industry coupled with his skill in education has provided a unique opportunity to fulfil several roles including as a subject matter expert, an instructional designer, and an instructor.
Today, Andrew is currently enrolled at Florida A & M University College of Law working toward his Juris Doctorate with a focus on business law and will graduate in 2020.
Why train with us?
Our drug and alcohol testing course library on our learning management platform is crafted with the modern professional in mind. We have designed our courses to embrace the dynamic educational standards of today’s workforce. We identified four distinct categories of educational practices to emphasize:
- Technology: The resources available to professional educators has grown leaps and bounds over the past decade. Our learners love that they can have digital access to training materials at any time, that video, audio, and online course integration allows them to learn at their own pace and on their own time on a computer, tablet or even a smartphone.
- Value: We believe that our students should expect more from a course than simply getting qualified on the fundamentals. We want to see our learners succeed after the course completion so our courses involve building an extra level of value that takes them even further. We can help answer questions such as, “how much should I charge for my new service?” and “what kind of technology can I use to enhance my services?”, we even provide free website trust seals to all students so they can show the world they are qualified specimen collectors and committed to a drug-free workplace.
- Interest: While incorporating technology and building value into our courses are necessary components for success in the education space, we know that the modern professional is also looking for some level of entertainment to keep her focus and interest in the content of the course. We have added examples, anecdotes, and other unique enhancements to our courses to ensure the full engagement of our learners.
- Approved Courses: Many courses we offer are approved for continuing education credits, which means they have met very high standards by the top accrediting substance abuse institutions.

History in the Making
A Big Idea!
In late 2012, while co-founder James Timothy White was immigrating to the United States he met Dr. Stephen H. MacDonald, a specialist in Occupational Medicine. After some concurring discussions about the need for professional training in the industry, that same night James called his friend Andrew Easler, a career educator. The two then began to research medical training businesses and eventually settled on drug and alcohol testing training courses.
