Jena Dyco International has launched the Clandestine Lab Testing and Analysis Course. It follows on from the Remediation of Clandestine Lab Residues course’s success, which was launched in July last year and teaches restorers how to clean up clandestine drug labs.
The Clandestine Lab Testing and Analysis course is geared towards occupational hygienists and advanced restoration technicians. It will lead students through the entire process of clandestine lab testing from the point they are notified of the site to the sign-off and handover after validation retesting of the dwelling.
The first course will be held on 13 and 14 of April at Jena Dyco’s Melbourne training facility.
Jena Dyco director Jenny Boymal explained the new course will develop on from Jena Dyco’s Meth Lab Cleanup project. “We’ve already established a course to teach restorers how to safely and correctly remediate properties, but currently in Australia there are very few occupational hygienists who are qualified to undertake forensic testing of these properties,” she said.
“As pre and post-testing are both critical steps in the remediation process, developing a clandestine lab testing and analysis course seemed like the next logical step.”
The course will be instructed by Jena Dyco trainer and ‘forensic guru’ Dr Nick Powell. He is also the director of New Zealand based Forensic and Industrial Science, a company which has been involved in the testing of more than 300 clandestine labs since 2004.
Jena Dyco is organising its annual Meth Lab Cleanup Conference, which will be held on Friday 29 July at Sea World, Gold Coast. For more information please visit www.meth2011.com.au
