ARIDE - Kansas City- June 2022 


Prerequisite: Students should be familiar with the extent of the drug impaired driving problem, must have successfully completed the basic Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) course, and attended a recent SFST refresher or update course.

Course Description: This is an intermediate level course designed to offer more than a basic understanding of the impairing effects of drugs (illicit and licit), alcohol, and/or the combination of both. The officer must be able to administer and interpret the horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN) test for alcohol-impaired suspects, and be proficient in the administration and evaluation of the battery of tests involved with SFST. The officer will be required to pass an SFST proficiency examination the first day of training.

The student who successfully completes this training will be able to recognize that an individual may be under the influence of a drug or drugs other than alcohol, or under the combined influence of alcohol and other drugs, or suffering from some injury or illness that produces signs similar to alcohol/drug impairment. Additionally, the student will be able to recognize the categories of drugs inducing the observable signs of impairment.

**NOTE: This course will NOT qualify an officer to serve as a Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).

Who Should Attend: Students should be a commissioned peace officer and/or prosecutor responsible for the detection, arrest, and prosecution of DWI drivers.
