(1) How to complete all steps necessary to conduct a urine specimen collection correctly and the proper completion and transmission of the Custody & Control Form (CCF);
(2) How to handle “problem collections" (e.g., situations like “shy bladder” and attempts to tamper with a specimen);
(3) When is a Direct Observation collection necessary & how the directly observed collection must be conducted; along with training on monitored collection situations;
(4) What are fatal flaws and correctable flaws; and how to correct problems in collections; and
(5) The collector's responsibility for:

    • maintaining the integrity of the collection process
    • ensuring the privacy of employees being tested
  • ensuring the security of the specimen
