Tongass employees earn certificates
Tongass Substance Screening, Inc. is pleased to announce the achievement of Collection Personnel Trainer certificates for the following employees: Kelly Baum, Keokuk Branch; Ginny Clay, Ketchikan Branch; and Pam Nelson, Juneau Branch.

All three completed their training at the Drug and Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA) conference in Dallas, Texas in April. The certificate allows them to train future collectors in urine and alternative specimen collection and to certify those students under the DATIA protocol.

Also attending the conference were Renee Schofield, Susan Bethel and Cindi Byrd. In addition to specific training, the TSS staff attended many other sessions related to drug and alcohol testing.

The four-day DATIA conference attendees numbered over 650, with companies from all over the nation. The 2009 conference will be held in Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
