Training and Education

We provide training for both employees and employers

Helping you channel your full potential

Whether you are new to drug testing or seeking a provider change, Butterfield Testing Solutions can help. Our extensive training program for our collectors is focused on growing their knowledge of the industry and sharing experiences to learn from each other.  We provide continuing education and training to strive for excellence.

We recognize that every company faces unique challenges.  Our goal is to be a resource to you.  As an extension of your safety team, we face those challenges together.  

Our Collectors Have The Training and Education

Our collectors are trained and qualified to conduct collections under the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) rule, 49 CFR Part 40. Notably, this rule describes the required procedures to conduct workplace drug and alcohol testing. In particular, DOT-regulated testing. 

The training and education of our collectors involve several hours.  They enjoy classroom instruction, knowledge checks, and mock collections. Mock collections represent the different scenarios that can occur during a job. They include scenarios such as shy bladder procedures and out of temp specimen collection.

We train our collectors to recognize the behaviors and characteristics of someone who may intend to cheat. They can handle these situations professionally.

Our team will make sure that samples collected come from the person being tested. BODT knowledgeable collectors will flush out substituted or synthetic urine. The methods we employ help to guarantee the integrity of the test.

Butterfield Testing Solutions collectors participate in continuing education classes. These classes increase their knowledge of our industry, and they learn from the experience of others. Our interested clients have questions and concerns, and we train our collectors to be a resource to them while onsite.

Safe and Secure

A meticulously trained and qualified collection technician will always seek to handle every situation with the utmost professionalism, looking out first and foremost for our clients.

We live in a litigious society so we train our collectors to write statements immediately after difficult collections so the experience is fresh in their mind.

This way if a situation does escalate, our collector statement is a valuable piece of evidence for the client.

Our collectors are courteous and friendly. We teach them how to handle difficult collections and to withhold judgment. The atmosphere they create disarms a person that is highly emotional in a compromising situation. We recognize that desperate times can call for desperate measures. As a result, we keep that in perspective and we are sensitive to them.

Why You Should Use Butterfield For Employee and Supervisor Training

Supervisors need training and education on how to recognize impairment and much more. Employees are no different.  Having everyone trained will make safety a priority on your job sites.  Try our live, in-person training to get the desired result. 

Being ENGAGED is the key! Our trainer can draw out even the shy ones to participate and enjoy the training.  She has several years in front of a classroom.  By the time she finishes, all participants will report learning valuable information to help them out in the field.  They almost always note that it was fun as well.

Class participants LOVE the activities we introduce because it brings the fun that they don’t expect. This helps participants be more involved and makes the training and education memorable.

We also offer training and education via video chat, doing our best to keep class participants engaged.
