Training Announcement
Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) Training offers additional
information to law enforcement officers on detecting impairment caused by more than just
alcohol. Once an officer completes the training he/she will be more proficient with the 3 test
battery of the SFST (HGN, WAT, OLS), as well as a broader knowledge of drug impairment
indicators. Law enforcement officers will also be more familiar with the Drug Recognition
Expert (DRE) program and its function. This course is approved for 16 APOSTC CEU hours.
PREREQUISITES: Students who attend this course should have completed the Basic DUI
Enforcement and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) training curriculum and be able to
complete a proficiency exam of the SFST and identify all validated clues on the first day of
training. Students must be full-time APOST certified law enforcement officers.
This course is not designed to certify an officer as a DRE.
