A Breath Test Operator permit is maintained through successful completion of continuing education.
Breath Test Operators must satisfy continuing education requirements in order to maintain valid permits; and continuing education requires successful completion of the applicable Commission-approved Renewal Course by June 30 following the fourth permit anniversary date, and during each subsequent four-year cycle.
The Intoxilyzer training program is designed to enhance public safety by ensuring the accuracy and scientific reliability of evidentiary breath and blood alcohol tests, facilitating enforcement of the implied consent laws under Florida State Chapter 11D-8, and promoting the qualifications and professionalism of persons responsible for breath and blood alcohol analysis within Florida.
Agency approval usually required before class. Most agencies request that individual officers contact their training department prior to self-registration.
