Throughout Australia, the issue of Methamphetamine abuse has developed significantly over the last decade. It can be easily made and produced in large quantities. As a result is has become an attractive prospect for drug manufacturers to move into, and push.

Residential properties and unoccupied houses are highly targeted by drug manufacturers. Therefore pushing the issue into our industry.

The remediation and cleaning industries have noticed a significant increase for servicing the effects of Methamphetamine on properties.  We discovered a gap in the market for a comprehensive training program.  As a result, we created this course to train cleaners and remediators to safely fix these properties.
