Register now for drug-free workplace training Oct. 30

HISD will be conducting a “drug-free workplace” training session on Tuesday, Oct. 30, for central office administrators, principals, principal designees, and managers.

The session will take place starting at 9 a.m. in the Holden Annex auditorium (812 West 28th St., 77008). The training is two hours in length and is good for four years before having to take the refresher course.

Participants must register through e-TRAIN using course code # BN0005. Registration is limited to 75 participants. This training teaches personnel how to recognize impaired employees in the work place and how to call for a reasonable suspicion drug/alcohol test.

Questions may be directed to Lynette Prater at 713-293-9732.

All female HISD employees are eligible for these screenings, which will take place at various locations. A full schedule is here (.pdf). To make an appointment, call 713-556-6655.
