Welcome Area 47 Operators
Operator Renewal Procedure 2017
All operators are expected to have completed at least 5 complete or valid breath tests from Nov. 1, 2016-July 31, 2017. Also, this year it is required that you attend the classroom portion with your Technical Supervisor for renewal training. The signup schedule for the classes will be posted to this webpage by July 1st.
This year, classes will be conducted during select dates and locations from August 15-October 6, 2017. Renewal must be completed by October 15th this year.
Operators who have not been conducting at least one test per month, or new operators who were certified late in the year may need to run additional tests in order to comply with this mandate, as they may not have had time yet to run one test each month.
We are asking all of our operators to finish all of your five complete tests by July 31, 2017. You will not be able to attend the classroom portion of your renewal until your five tests are complete.
There is a log at each location which lists each operator. You should be marking the square for each month that you have completed a proper and complete subject or practice test. One of your technical supervisors will check the log each month and initial that your test is acceptable. If your test is not initialed on the log, then it was not complete or entered properly; therefore, it will not count toward your five required tests and you should run an additional one.
Any operators who are unable to login to perform tests should contact this office immediately so we can determine your certification status and resolve the issue.
It is preferable that operators run their tests on instruments within Area 47; however, it is not mandatory. Please remember that not leaving a record at the location, a positive breath alcohol reading on your practice test, an incomplete test, or improperly conducting your test is reason for failure of your renewal.
