AWDTS as now trained thousands of collectors both nationally and internationally.  The course is a day long, nationally-accredited course and one of the few available in Australia that meets the requirements of AS/NZS4308:2008 (urine testing) and AS4760:2006 (oral fluids testing) with a Statement of Attainment issued upon successful completion.  The course is broken into two components, the first dealing with alcohol breath testing and the second with urine, oral fluids and other forms of drug testing and sample collection including Chain of Custody requirements.

Given the expertise and experience that has gone into the writing of this course, and the fact that AWDTS presenters are required to have a minimum of 10 years industry experience as toxicologists, health professionals or in this specialised safety area, it is hardly surprising that the course has been described by many in the industry as Australia’s best.
