Drug and Alcohol Collector Refresher Training

Overview

AusHealth Work’s Drug & Alcohol Collector Refresher Training provides an opportunity for Collectors to update their skills and knowledge. This ensures collections and screening are performed in a professional and consistent manner, whilst maintaining Donor privacy and confidentiality, and protecting specimen integrity in line with Australian Standards:

  • AS 3547:1997 Breath alcohol testing devices for personal use
  • AS 4760:2006 Procedures for specimen collection and the detection and quantitation of drugs in oral fluid and
  • AS/NZS 4308:2008 Procedures for specimen collection and the detection and quantitation of drugs of abuse in urine.

The refresher training includes practical activities that require Collectors to demonstrate their ability to handle adverse situations such as managing non-compliant Donors and situations requiring on-the-spot problem solving. In a simulated environment, they will be required to successfully undertake a breath alcohol screening and oral fluid and/or urine collection and screening.
