NHTSA's "DWI Detection & SFST Student Training Course”
June 23-25, 2023 & October 6-8, 2023
The most current NHTSA SFST Training Curriculum at the time of the course will be used.
Approved for 19.5 CLE hours by the State Bar of GA
Due to the live alcohol workshops and the proficiency exam, this course is limited to the first 20 registered participants.
This course is taught by an experienced SFST Instructor who has trained 1000’s of law enforcement officers in the standardized field sobriety tests.
This is not an “overview” or “crash course” on SFSTs. This is the actual 24-hour NHTSA DWI/SFST student training course.
Participants will receive the exact training law enforcement officers receive throughout the nation in the most up to date NHTSA “DWI/SFST Student” course. All 15 modules will be covered in order for participants to become a SFST practitioner under NHTSA guidelines.
Learn exactly how officers are trained to administer and interpret the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, Walk and Turn test, and One Leg Stand test.
Two live alcohol workshops will be conducted so the participants will be able to administer the SFSTs, as well as observe true physical manifestations (bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, etc.) on volunteers with BrACs from 0.00 to 0.15.
