Online Breath Alcohol Technician Certification

Learn about Lifeloc's Online Training Programs

Who is required to become a Breath Alcohol Technician?

Anyone performing US Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated breath alcohol testing must be trained as a Breath Alcohol Technician (BAT), and individuals performing non-DOT regulated testing are encouraged to do the same.

What is required to become a Breath Alcohol Technician?

The BAT candidate must understand and demonstrate proficiency in using the alcohol testing protocol detailed in 49 CFR Part 40 and the training must be in accordance with the DOT Model BAT Course. The training must include both a comprehensive procedural instruction and an equipment proficiency demonstration specific to the manufacturer and model of the breath alcohol testing device being used. The student equipment proficiency demonstration must be observed "live" by the BAT instructor either in person or via webcam.

Lifeloc Master Trainers follow these requirements for both mandated and non-mandated alcohol testing.

Training is available at our factory in Denver Colorado, at your location or via the web. Web based training includes the online procedural portion and the proficiency demonstration either via web or in person with the Lifeloc Master Trainer.

Lifeloc also offers Provisional Instructor Certification which certifies an employee to train other company employees as both BATs and Certified Lifeloc Operator and Calibration Technicians.

Lifeloc’s training courses are entertaining and informative, a big improvement from the dry classes I have taken in the past. I completed the initial Breath Alcohol Technician Course in person and next completed the refresher course online. Our Lifeloc Master Trainer is terrific to work with on training and regulation issues, and is always available to answer questions. We have been using Lifeloc’s products for six years now and I would recommend the company for its outstanding customer support.

I am so pleased with my Lifeloc distributor and trainer. Not only is Lifeloc’s alcohol and drug training affordable, the flexibility makes it convenient to schedule training for a busy office like mine. I have peace of mind knowing that my staff has had quality training and is fully prepared to perform testing with no experience. I highly recommend using Lifeloc trainers for any business that is looking for quality education and professional service.

My team completed Breath Alcohol Technician Training from a Lifeloc Master Trainer who worked directly with our staff. She is always available to answer any questions or problems we have with our breath testers. Lifeloc’s training is excellent based on its convenience, quality, responsive and knowledgeable instructors, and relevant content.

Our BAT staff found this training to be very informative and user friendly. I must agree with our BAT staff on this. The web based class for our mock testing was just as user friendly. I would recommend this training to others that need to be certified or need refresher training. Thanks again for your assistance and guidance on our training.

The online line BAT training course that LifeLoc has put together is first class. The time spent onsite for training can be cut from 1 1/2 days to 1/2 a day to complete the equipment training and the proficiency training on the instrument. Lifeloc has raised the bar by introducing this high quality online BAT qualification training program.

BAT Training nationwide was going to be cumbersome at some point because we would need a BAT trainer to train each franchisee, but with Lifeloc’s suggestion of the Online DOT BAT training we now have a PERFECT fit and solution for our expansion. We put one of our new employees through the program this week and we LOVE the training.

Over the last 15 years I have been involved with various training programs for breath alcohol technicians (BAT) and urine specimen collectors.  I recently had the opportunity to complete the web based on line training provided by Lifeloc Technologies.  Besides being very convenient; this is an excellent training program with quality course content that is self paced, easy to read, current, accurate and compliant with DOT regulations.  It is engaging and presented with great reference manuals,  graphics, audio and video and allows for ongoing review of the training for five years.  As a leading expert in the drug/alcohol testing  industry I highly recommend the Lifeloc Web-Based BAT Certification for both newcomers and veterans of the industry that need BAT training and Certification.

I recently had the opportunity to complete the online BAT training course provided by Lifeloc technologies. This course focused on Breath Alcohol Technician Training and was truly a unique, engaging, and educational experience. The content of the course was easy to read, the modules were highly interactive, and each section included rich multimedia content which helped to keep me, as the student, engaged and focused. The program provided a wealth of easy to reference information which can be accessed following the completion of the course for up to five years. This program is more than just a training program; it is a reference tool for industry regulations, practices and procedures. I highly recommend the Lifeloc Web-Based BAT Certification training program for any and all industry professionals who are in need of the BAT Certification or a comprehensive refresher.
