Opioid Trends

1- to 5-Day Course

This versatile course can be provided as a one-day overview to convey awareness of the hazards associated with newly identified opioid drugs or as a comprehensive program ranging up to five days in duration incorporating mock lab practical exercises (fentanyl, carfentanil, ohmefentanyl, etc.) and in-depth instruction. As novel opioid and other synthetic processes emerge, it becomes increasingly difficult for personnel to adapt to a constantly evolving narcotic landscape. Training covers the production methods, history, legality, investigations, and safety-related issues that personnel who may encounter these dangerous synthetic drugs need to understand to protect themselves on the job.

NOTE: This program is currently only offered in client-specific on-site format (at our clients’ locations).
