Need to take a court ordered alcohol awareness or minor in possession class online? Finding a trusted and quality program to meet your educational requirements can be difficult because there are many programs to choose from. A quality program should offer several length formats including both a Level 1 and Level 2 program.
Alcohol awareness classes as well as minor in possession or MIC classes can vary greatly. This is mostly due in part to a lack of standardization of program content. It is important for the consumer of these classes to ensure the program they are taking is offered by qualified providers of these courses.
Distance learning education is rather new, but most state courts are open to online programs when the courses can verified by the judge, probation, or other legal official. Good programs should include the same content found in the live counterpart classes. The online system should use a sophisticated yet simple to use online format. Consumers should be able to read through content, watch a video, answer short quiz questions and be tested with a final exam.
Participants should expect to gain skills in a variety of areas including:
- Introduction of course
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse Risk Factors
- The cost of Abuse and Addiction
- Understanding Narcotics, Stimulants, Prescriptions, Marijuana, Methamphetamine
- Health Risks of Alcohol and Drug Use
- How Drugs effect the Brain, Central Nervous System and Body
- Risk Factors for Men and Women
- Communication Skills as Prevention
- Skills in Stress Management
- Consequences and Risks of use with Minors
- Understanding Use, Abuse, Addiction, Relapse and Prevention
All participants should receive a certificate of completion when they finish the class with a unique identification number on it. There is no need to miss time away from work, or family commitments. Good courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even if you are required to take an alcohol awareness class, the program should still open your eyes to areas of alcohol use, abuse, or addiction you may never knew or thought about.
