Any Law Enforcement agency can become a Breath Alcohol Program (BAP) certified agency. There are several steps to becoming a certified agency. First, contact the BAP at 785-296-1642 or via email. An agency application will be provided to your agency. The application must be filled out and returned to KDHE for approval. The officers at the agency wanting to become certified operators must submit a training application and attend an Intoxilyzer 9000 class. If the agency also wants an instrument, they need to specify this when contacting the BAP. If the agency is granted an instrument, a BAP staff member will set up the instrument at the agency and instruct the custodian on his/her responsibilities. The instrument will be tested at the agency when it is set up.
To become a certified operator, an individual must submit a training application to KDHE. The training application can be downloaded from the Breath Alcohol Laboratory Program page. The individual will be placed on the roster of the class they have selected, if available. A confirmation email will be sent to the Agency Custodian two weeks prior to the class date. The individual must attend, complete and pass the Intoxilyzer 9000 training course. After completing and passing the course, the newly certified operator will receive an operator's certification card.
The class schedule is located on the Breath Alcohol Laboratory Program page. To determine if a class is full or if an individual from your agency is in a specific class, contact the Breath Alcohol Program (BAP) at 785-296-1642 or via email.
Continuing education is stipulated in K.A.R. 28-32-10(d). All certified operators must complete the online continuing education training at least once every two years to renew their certification. The online training is located on the Kansas Train website. If you have any questions, contact the Breath Alcohol Program at 785-296-1642 or via email.
Please, go to the Breath Alcohol Laboratory Program page to download the form you need.
The change of status form is used to notify the Breath Alcohol Program (BAP) when a certified operator leaves an agency, comes to an agency or changes their name. The change of status form can be downloaded from the Breath Alcohol Laboratory Program page. Complete the appropriate information to delete, transfer or change the name of an operator. If you have any questions, contact the BAP at 785-296-1642 or via email.
Contact Breath Alcohol Program (BAP) staff to notify them of the issue. The BAP staff may be able to assist so the instrument can be returned to service. If the BAP staff are unable to assist and determine the instrument does need to go for repair, we will help complete the CMI Service Evaluation form. Please indicate to the BAP staff member whether a loaner instrument is desired. Include the completed form in the box with the instrument and mail it to CMI. Their address is located at the bottom of the evaluation form. Remember to remove your gas cylinder prior to boxing your instrument. Following repair, the instrument will be sent to the BAP to verify the instrument and then returned to your agency. If you have any questions, contact the BAP at 785-296-1642 or via email.
Check to determine the repaired instrument has been verified by a Breath Alcohol Program (BAP) staff member. The yellow service work order form should have the date and initials of a BAP staff member that performed the post-repair verification. You should also have maintenance log entries showing that the repair records have been entered into the instrument. If anything is missing contact the BAP prior to setting up the instrument. If the paperwork is all located, set up your instrument, perform a 'standard change' (if required) and perform a Weekly QC check using the "return" option. The instrument has now been returned to service and is ready for use.
Note: If the operator needs to renew their certification during the current calendar year, add their name, operator number, and a box in front of their name to the Operator Certification Renewal Application and mark the box to reflect their intent to renew.
