DATAC Training is excellent!

All of our Collectors & Technicians have been trained by DATAC. The courses are thorough and straightforward and the support during and after the process is immediate. We have had many questions and every time we contact DATAC we get what we need. DATAC has helped our D&A business grow a lot. We wouldn't be here without it!

DATAC Has Us Covered

It is very important when enrolling in training programs to be informed of industry standards and the needs of those who you will be working with once you achieve your certification. DATAC has us covered in regards to all the up to date information I don’t always have time to be searching for. The online training is fantastic and laid out very clearly step by step and you can see your progress as you go. Their customer service is very prompt and reliable for when I have questions, and for years we at A2Z Safety & Training Ltd have chosen DATAC to use as our training provider as we build our Certified Drug and Alcohol Testing Team.
