Good morning, Gents:
As some of you may know, for the last several years I have worked for the Colorado Division of Criminal Justice, (CRCPI) providing free training on methlabs. Unfortunately, the course has been open mostly to law enforcement and emergency responders (hose draggers and the like) , and not offered to the general public.
Last year, however, NACHI was going to sponsor a methlab course for HIs at one of it’s meetings in Denver. Then, a few days before the course was scheduled to take place, it hit an obstacle and the course was cancelled.
However, the interest hasn’t waned, and since January, I have had about ten or twelve HIs ask if we were going to have another class.
As a result, we will be putting on an eight hour certified course for methlab entry. Although the course is geared to ensure compliance with Colorado regs and statutes which prohibit entry into clanlabs unless the person has been duly trained in the subject, the course will extensively cover recognition, booby-traps, PPE, indicators, and a variety of other areas pertinent to folks in other states.
Anyone interested in attending the course can get more information from our web discussions on methamphetamine, or obtain a PDF of the flier at:
If I have violated board rules by posting an advertisement, I apologize up-front and will remove the post if requested.
