Clandestine Laboratory

Safety Training & Support

NES is the worldwide leader in clandestine laboratory safety training for first responders in law enforcement, hazmat, firefighter, and civil support teams through our Clandestine Laboratory Training Department.

Our team of professionals has experience in the law enforcement, forensic chemistry, and safety fields, bringing expert opinions and teachings from those with real-world experiences.

Illicit clandestine laboratories have plagued the United States and other countries for years. Traditional narcotics such as methamphetamine, marijuana, and heroin have been replaced with new designer drugs, and the area is constantly evolving. In some instances, illicit labs may produce toxins or explosives, incapacitating personnel. The Clandestine Laboratory Training Department at NES identifies trends in illicit operations and incorporates the most up-to-date equipment, PPE, and protocols for training first responders who must operate in these arenas. Our training provides a comprehensive and user-friendly, hands-on training system that covers all aspects of clandestine laboratory safety.
