About this Course

Controlled Drug Accountable Officers are responsible for the safe management and use of Controlled Drugs within their organisation along with co-operating and sharing information relating to concerns about their use and management under the Controlled Drugs (Supervision of Management and Use) Regulations 2013.

Sancus Solutions offer a unique and essential two-day CDAO training course, delivered via the Zoom platform, by our experienced team of CDAO trainers throughout the year. This course can be booked online – follow the links on this page.

We also deliver this essential two-day CDAO training course, for organisations “in house”, at a venue and timing of your choosing for up to 14 delegates. We are able to tailor this training for your particular needs. Please use the contact button at the bottom of the page.

Essential Two Day CDAO training
The two day course is essential for those new to the role and covers:

One of the roles of a CDAO is to investigate or to oversee investigations conducted on their behalf. A question to ask yourself is, if an incident arose, would my investigations at present stand up to the detailed scrutiny which would ultimately happen?

The investigations training incorporated into the course will give you a working knowledge of the relevant legislation which you can then apply to all of your investigations, giving you confidence in the knowledge that you could withstand scrutiny at any level.

Note – Certificates of attendance are provided to all delegates who complete the 2 Day Controlled Drug Accountable Officer course which can then be used as evidence of 12 hours of CPD for appraisal and re validation purposes.

Sancus also offers a CDAO Refresher course to bring AO’s up to date with recent developments. We recommend that CDAO’s enrol on this interactive online training between twelve and twenty four month after their two day training.

Essential Two Day CDAO training

The CDAO Refresher brings AO’s up to date with recent developments. This interactive refresher course consists of several units which provide protected time for internet research and reading activities together with e-learning modules and regular knowledge checks to ensure your understanding.

Certificates of completion is provided to all delegates which can be used as evidence of CPD for appraisal and revalidation purposes.

Please note, this is a self-paced training and none of our trainers will be present during the CDAO Refresher training. You will be guided to our NEW eLearning Platform MOODLE, where you can find all your learning materials once you log in. It is simple and easy to use but we are always here to help.
