About Our Courses
Drug Test Certification FAQs - most asked questions about certification
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Once we receive payment for the class we will email the materials that need to be read. Once you have finished reading the materials we will send you your
logins to take the online course and exams. Next the mock collections are done via webcam. The final step is to mail the training chain of custody forms
to Transmetron for review. If they are “Error Free” as the DOT regulates certificates will be issued and mailed out.
IS THERE A TIME LIMIT FOR GETTING IT DONE?
Yes, 120 days from the date of purchase.
These classes are done at your own pace. You have as much time as you need to complete the courses. The only training course that has a time limit is
the BAT course. You have 30 days to complete the Proficiencies from the date you complete the online course (a DOT regulated mandate).
Please see our refund policy.

certified to do DOT collections. We recommend to anyone who would like to be certified for Urine Drug Screen collector that you complete the DOT course.
