This course is designed to familiarize students with the physiological effects of alcohol and how it reacts in the human system; develop student skills in recognizing the driving behavior of the drinking driver; prepare students to properly operate the accepted and approved Breath Testing Instruments in Illinois; develop student knowledge of the legal requirements of breath alcohol testing; courtroom testimony and SFST review.


Every department should have officers trained and certified in the operation of breath testing equipment to meet the legal requirements imposed through legislation. The intricacies associated with making a DUI arrest, which include critical time limitations, make a trained and certified operator essential to the modern police agency.


Are You Expired? A license shall be valid for a period of three years from the printed date of issuance.  

After expiration, the BAO may not operate an instrument. A BAO license that has either been revoked or been expired for more than one year cannot be renewed. To become licensed again, the individual must complete the initial licensure course. (This means up to one year after the three-year expiration date, the BAO CAN renew the license using the computer based training, and does not have to attend the in-person class)
