We provide training for law enforcement, fire department and forensic professionals. Our instructors are experts in their fields and have been involved in the investigation, seizure, and prosecution of clandestine laboratories. Our other instructors are experts in the area of chemicals properties and chemical hazards. These are not your typical run of the mill training and certification programs. You won’t get a lot of insignificant information, all training is in compliance with OSHA regulations. Also, you won’t feel the pinch of high prices that others charge for certification classes.

We do not have a training center to conduct these courses. Agencies wishing to have this training must provide a facility and any other logistics to complete the specific course. This is done to keep cost down.

Contact us with your needs and we can price a program to fit your budget.
