Certified Urine Specimen Collector Training

Learn about Lifeloc's Online Training Programs

A drug collector is a person who instructs and assists employees at a collection site, who receives and makes an initial inspection of the specimen provided by those employees, and who initiates and completes the Chain of Custody Form. The drug collector has direct, face to face contact with the employee/subject. Without the collector ensuring the integrity of the urine specimen and collection process, the test itself may lose credibility.

Under the US Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, an individual performing urine drug collection must receive qualification training.

Our web-based collector training procedural course satisfies the requirements for qualification training as outlined in Federal Regulations, 49 CFR Part 40.

    Contents Include:
  • Monitored and observed collections
  • Donor identification
  • Custody and control forms
  • Procedures for urine collection

Complete the DOT required procedural training online. Once your procedural collector training is completed the DOT requires completion of five observed mock collections under various scenarios. These can be completed via webcam or in-person with a Lifeloc Master Trainer or qualified instructor in your organization.

After completion of collector qualification training and five mock collections you are fully qualified to perform DOT urine specimen collections. You will receive completion certifications for the Procedural Training and Mock Test Practicals.

What is required to become a drug collector?

The collector candidate must understand and demonstrate proficiency in following US DOT urine specimen collection procedures, guidelines and any specific DOT agency regulations applicable to the employer for whom collections are performed. This demonstration includes performing observed, error free mock drug collection tests.

Lifeloc utilizes a network of Master Trainers who can provide Drug Collector Instructor training which will allow you to train your employees as collectors. Contact your Lifeloc Master Trainer or Lifeloc's Training Department at 800.722.4872 or email training@lifeloc.com

I have taken Breath Alcohol Technician and Urine Specimen Collection Training from a Lifeloc distributor. Our Master Trainer has always been very knowledgeable on laws and procedures and we could schedule training around our busy schedules. Lifeloc recently trained two of my employees who are very well informed about the procedures. Lifeloc’s Master Trainer even helped us introduce a new hospital system to pull names for random drug screenings and breath alcohol tests. Lifeloc provides great support for its breath alcohol testers.
