Recognizing the signs and symptoms of individuals under the influence of drugs is important to ensure the safety and health of students and education professionals. This Drug Impairment and Behavior Recognition for Education Professionals (DIBREP) course is designed to provide administrators, counselors, teachers, and school nurses with tools and training necessary to recognize and document drug/alcohol impairment in students.
This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for Alcohol and Drug Use Awareness for Law Enforcement #2085.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the
education process, and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all
class sessions and field exercises. The course requires participants to attend
a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course
completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional
attendance requirement, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
Participants in a TCOLE credit course must
complete the class in its entirety to receive TCOLE credit.
