Training for DOT

The US Department of Transportation requires training for all technicians performing DOT breath alcohol tests. Whether you use a Dräger breathalyzer or one from another manufacturer, 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. All of our breathalyzer trainings meet the mandates in 49 CFR Part 40.213. To request DOT training please click the contact us button.

Instrument Proficiency Training

We offer instrument proficiency training on all Dräger for DOT models. If you use more than one of our breathalyzer units, we can perform training on all models in one class, for no additional charge.

Training Venues

Classroom Courses: If you prefer traditional classroom training, you can join one of the scheduled courses included in our National Training Schedule. If you have a number of employees to train, we also can train at your location. Whether you join others in a class or schedule one just for your company, classroom training allows all of the attendees to share experiences and offers a rich learning environment.

On-line Options: If you need training without travel, we provide person-to-person training using the Internet. This is a fully interactive training, offered in a one-on-one or group environment. You can join peers in a collaborative class or schedule a personal training, tailored to your schedule. This option can be perfect for tight budgets or training timeframes.
