For each course dates a nominated experienced Instructor will be assigned to the course, additional Guest Instructors will deliver presentations on selected topics and unlike most other companies we offer the ability for attendees to view and train with experienced instructors and trainers onsite throughout the entire course.

Whilst industry guidelines state a minimum of 100 learning hours for a Proactive Drug Detection Dog Handler Course our course exceeds this with the additional topics included. We have composed the course into 15 days including additional ‘homework’ and self-learning hours.
