CHUBBUCK — Southeastern Idaho Public Health and Idaho State Police will be conducting a free Drug Impairment Training for Educational Professionals on June 17 and 18 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at Idaho Central Credit Union’s Administration Building at 4400 Central Way in Chubbuck.

The goal of the training is to equip educational professionals with the skills to identify alcohol- or drug-impaired students and ensure a safe learning environment. Participants will learn how to identify the signs of impairment by drug type. DITEP is a one- or two-day training. Day one is for anyone affiliated with the school interested in general drug education and policies. Day two is best suited for those who will actually conduct the hands-on evaluation, such as school nurses and school resource officers.
