HLTPAT005  Collect specimens for drugs of abuse testing

Upgrade Training / Recognition of Prior Learning



The previous Unit of Competency, HLTPAT304D Collect pathology specimens other than blood, has been superseded. 


A new nationally recognised Unit of Competency, HLTPAT005 - Collect Specimens for Drugs of Abuse Testing was introduced in 2016.


If you have you previously successfully completed HLTPAT304, specific to workplace drug and alcohol testing, you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning towards the latest workplace drug and alcohol training course.


Once your recognition of prior learning application has been approved, you may be required to attend a full day or upgrade training course, depending on the currency and scope of your testing experience.

Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be issued with a Statement of Attainment for the new unit of competency.



Progressive Diagnostics provides a holistic training delivery approach to address the learning styles and needs of participants.


Our training courses are conducted Face-to-Face either onsite at your workplace or at our training venue and include practical ‘hands-on’ experiences, as well as group classroom-based activities and discussion, including simulations and scenarios.
