Preface


With the enactment of legislation concerning the area
of Chemical Tests for Intoxication by the 1967 Legisla-
ture, it has become necessary for the Florida State
Board of Health and the Florida Department of Public
Safety to approve and certify instructors, technicians,
and instruments used within the State of Florida in
Chemical Tests for Intoxication.

This publication will provide a State-wide standardized
course of instruction to qualify technicians in the
operation of certified Chemical Tests for Intoxication
instruments and to provide information toward the prep-
aration of cases and court presentation. State rules
\ and regulations now require an annual requalifying
course subsequent to satisfactory completion of this
technicians course.

The Chemical Tests for Intoxication breath test method
for determining blood alcohol has been accepted by
the American Medical Association, American Bar Assoc-
iation, International Association of Chiefs of Police
and the National Safety Council. The material pre-
sented in this publication was researched and prepared
by the Florida State Department of Education. It has
been approved by the Florida State Board of Health and
the Florida Department of Public Safety.

The Chemical Tests for Intoxication program, sponsored
by the Florida State Department of Education and operated
through County Boards of Public Instruction, acknowl-
edges with appreciation the assistance of Professor
Robert F. Borkenstein and associates, of Indiana Uni-
versity.

Course Description


The Chemical Tests for Intoxication Technicians Course
is a forty hour course designed to educate members of the
law enforcement profession in approved methods to deter-
mine the degree of intoxication of a person through an
analysis of the breath to determine the amount of blood
alcohol present in the system at the time of arrest.

The course of instruction includes the history of alco-
hol, its effect upon the human body, alcohol tolerance,
laws affecting chemical tests, types of tests and the
measurement of alcohol in body fluids through the use
of various approved instruments. Also included is case
preparation and court work and general maintenance of
testing instruments.

Those who successfully complete the course and qualify
as Chemical Tests for Intoxication Technicians are is-
sued a certificate by the State Department of Education
and are approved by the Florida State Board of Health
and the Florida Department of Public Safety in conform-
ance with Chapter 67-308, sections 322,261 and 322.262,
Florida Statutes, relating to chemical tests as to intox-
ication of persons operating a motor vehicle within the
State of Florida.
