This course prepares the law enforcement officer for certification and licensing as a Breath Test Operator by the State of Illinois. Instruction includes detailed discussions on drinking driver enforcement, pharmacological effects of alcohol, legal matters relating to drinking driver enforcement, (including implied consent and case preparation for court), operation and function of breath test equipment approved for use in Illinois and laboratory training in the use of the equipment.

**Please note that this class has been reduced from a 24 hour class to a 16 hour class.

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 A BAO license that has either been revoked or been expired for more than one year cannot be renewed.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)
