8 HOUR Substance Influence Recognition (SIR)

These substances are further defined and categorized in California Health and Safety Code Section 11550 and influence of substances not included in 11550H&S is further covered in CPC 647(f) and CPC 381 (Toluene). Additional coverage is provided in the curriculum for Designer Drugs NOT covered or addressed in current California or Federal Codes. This course is ideal for Police Officers, Probation Officers, Correction Officers, Parole Officers, or any other Peace Officer, group home supervisor or mental health worker having contact with drug users. A segment of this course is dedicated to California’s AB109 and flash incarceration, violating probation or parole and adding conditions of probation or parole.
