IICRC Courses

A meth testing course that challenges you to explore all avenues during client consultation


On average there is approximately 600 clandestine laboratory busts each year throughout Australia. The Australian Crime Commission states that for every lab bust there is another 10 operating undetected.  This does not take into account properties contaminated as a result of prolonged heavy smoking of the drug.

With landlords and property managers building an appetite to manage the risks associated with meth contamination, and home buyers seeking assurance that any properties of interest are toxic-free and safe for occupancy, we are seeing increased demand for meth testing services in all major cities throughout Australia.

As a technician providing sampling services to property stakeholders it is imperative that you are not only certified as competent in the field of NIOSH 9111 methodology, but you have a comprehensive understanding of what methamphetamine is, how it can contaminate, and the testing options available to your client. This is where Decon Systems come in!

“Isaac and Rosemary are both fantastic educators and will do everything they can before, during and after the course to ensure you have a good understanding of both testing and decontaminating methamphetamine.”   Alliance Building 

Developed in line with the Australian Voluntary Code of Practice, Australian Clandestine Drug Laboratory Remediation Guidelines, and relevant state directives this course will teach you how to conduct NIOSH 9111 meth testing and assessments on properties in Australia, and provides insight into the drug methamphetamine and the impact its residues may have on property and vehicles. There is also a strong focus on meth contamination awareness in which we look at how a property becomes contaminated, testing options and limitations, and the how to manage the risk of meth contamination as a landlord, property manager or insurer.
