Training Aim

The aim is to provide the trainee with the knowledge, skills and strategies, in order to help identify and eliminate the implications and dangers that methamphetamine, Meth Clan Labs and ‘cooks’ bring to their working environment and their community, thereby protecting people and profits, preventing loss and managing risk.

Included as part of the training process is the following:


Each trainee receives a booklet that contains ‘must know’, key reference and ‘indicator’ information.


Trainees completing the Clan Lab course receive a certificate acknowledging their successful completion of the Clan Lab Awareness course.


A range of identification posters for key work spaces (signs and indicators of meth use, manufacture and chemicals and equipment used). These support the training content by providing everyday visual reminders of key aspects and indicators of methamphetamine use and manufacture, ensuring that the training translates into the everyday working environment and becomes a constant reminder and deterrent.
