We offer high-quality personalized trainings for all DOT Breath Alcohol Technicians in a number of formats and options to keep your program up and running.

Why Should I Take This Course?
- Clients needing only one service may return for a different service if they know you are capable and certified.
- There are fewer Breath Alcohol Technicians in the market because of a higher barrier-to-entry.
- Companies are more willing to sign long-term contracts for services with companies who can service their every testing and pre-employment need.
- Work at your own pace; whether you are starting your own business or enhancing an existing career in the industry, time is hard to come by. Work on your time and at your own pace.
What You Will Need
Students will need access to a computer with a webcam and reliable Internet access. This course will also require an EBT Device for demonstrations and enough mouthpieces for completing more than 7 mocks (at least 10 spare mouthpieces). In addition, the technician will need to have at least 10 Alcohol Testing Forms (ATFs) and tamper-evident tape if your EBT Device does not print tamper evident self-adhesive labels.
