What is required to become a Type 2?

You must be at least 21 years of age and employed by the law enforcement agency that owns the Breath Analyzer instrument. There may be two Type 2’s per instrument at each agency.  It is expected that each Type 2 will have hands-on proficiency with the instrument and will perform an equal share of the monthly maintenance reports. The BA instrument responsibilities should be shared equally.

An approved training course is required before a permit may be issued from the Breath Alcohol Program. Prior approval from DHSS is necessary to attend either of the training facilities in order to acquire Type 2 training.

There are two primary training facilities; the Missouri State Highway Patrol Academy located in Jefferson City, and the University of Central Missouri, Missouri Safety Center located in Warrensburg.

Beyond these requirements, it will be necessary to contact our office.
