Presented by: Paul Newell and Keith Norman in conjunction with specialist guest presenters

Developed and presented by subject matter, national and internationally recognised experts including Paul Newell, author and subject matter expert for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and author of the Australian clandestine drug laboratory remediation guidelines, along with Keith Norman, one of Australia's leading and most experienced forensic scientists, illicit drug and CBRN experts.

This course offers a candid and engaging insight into the world of illicit drugs and the complex public health and safety issues they create, providing a professional development opportunity rarely seen outside of forensic science and law enforcement in Australia.

The course has been developed specifically for Local Government Officers (including EHO's, Rangers, Building Surveyors, Community Service Officers and a broad range of other Local Government Officers), to support them in managing and responding to the range illicit drug related issues they may encounter. The course aims to provide participants with a factual and detailed understanding of the underlying science behind illicit drugs and drug contamination in a simple, practical and engaging format. The course will build participant knowledge in the specialist field of illicit drugs and drug contamination, covering not only common drugs of abuse, such as meth and the smoking of ice, but also examining emerging drugs including synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and their implication on public health and contamination. The course will also cover a range of related subjects from the technical, such as hazard identification and risk characterisation, through to officer safety and dealing with aggressive or violent individuals.

The course will build on existing professional knowledge in environmental and public health, drawing on both participant and presenters experience in an interactive and engaging learning experience which will provide participants with the confidence to make informed, risk and evidence-based decisions when confronted with, or when managing illicit drug or drug related contamination issues in their role as an environmental and public health professional and Local Government authorised officer.
