The Traffic Safety Program offers the following DRE courses.
Drug Recognition Expert (DRE)
This is a three-phase training curriculum that will train and certify law enforcement officers to become highly effective in detecting and identifying a person who is impaired by alcohol and/or drugs. The curriculum consists of Drug Recognition Pre-School, Drug Recognition Expert School and Drug Recognition Field Certification.
Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) Instructor Development
This course is designed to enable DREs to develop the skills and knowledge that allows them to observe, evaluate, and verify the performance of candidate DREs throughout the training and certification process. DRE Instructors also provide periodic update training to and mentor DREs already certified, administer ARIDE training to other law enforcement officers, and observe and review evaluations for DRE’s recertification requirements.
