Our TESA Directive Methamphetamine Laboratory Inspection Course provides students with the training and knowledge they required to successfully perform their role to the highest level of industry standards. By completing this course you will obtain TESA Certification.

Methamphetamine is a cheap and straightforward drug to manufacture.  As a result, this industry has grown in Australia over the last decade and impacted to the wider community. 

Increased spread of Methamphetamine has led to two distinct issues for cleaners and remediators.  The first and most significant are properties that have been used to manufacture the drug. While the second are properties known, or suspected, to have had the drug smoked on the premises. 

This Course has been put together to cater for those wishing to get into the inspection side of the industry.  It is also a good resource for remediators and cleaners wishing to understand the reports and processes. A lot goes into developing a scope of works or works plan for these type of jobs.

To find out when the next course is scheduled, please see our Course Dates.

The TESA Directive Methamphetamine Laboratory Inspector Course has been developed in accordance with the Australian State and Federal Government Guidelines for Methamphetamine laboratories, as well as those the New Zealand Federal Government Guidelines, another government forced to deal with this issue.

The course focusses on the entire inspection process from first attendance, to making important sampling and observations decision, to finally developing a comprehensive and yet accessible scope of works.
