THE DRUG AND ALCOHOL TESTING INSTITUTE

The Drug and Alcohol Testing Institute (DATI) is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) delivering accredited courses in Workplace Drug & Alcohol Testing to individuals and a variety of industries and businesses both large and small across Australia.

We offer accreditation in breath alcohol, urine drug testing and saliva drug testing (or any combination of these three areas).

DATI has a well-deserved reputation for excellence.

We developed our first nationally accredited course in 2000, long before it became a requirement of the Australian Standards for drug testing. Specifically, the Australian Standards require collectors to hold a statement of attainment in accordance with the Australian Qualification Training Framework (AQTF).

Our courses, 10275NAT – Course in Workplace Drug Testing (Breath Alcohol) (Oral Fluid – Saliva) (Urine) and HLTPAT005 – Collect specimens for drugs of abuse testing, are nationally accredited course and meet the training requirements for a collector as defined in the Standards AS / NZS 4308:2008 (urine) and AS 4670:2006 (oral fluid).

The course is listed under our scope on training.gov.au here

We are committed to creating the highest standards of quality and ethical drug & alcohol testing training and we do this through the engagement of our individual members, corporate and strategic partners, governing bodies and key stakeholders.

Through DATI, individuals have access to qualified timely advice into drug and alcohol policy, regulation and research in addition to the latest advances in testing technology. We have developed quality, professional courses set to national health and safety standards, procedures and practices under Australian law.
