What will I learn?
During this course, you will learn to:
- Establish a common vocabulary and explanation of acronyms common to addressing cases where a military member (active duty, Guard or Reserve), is involved in an impaired driving event.
- Inform participants about the reality that Active duty, Guard and Reserve personnel are more likely to have their cases resolved in civilian jurisdictions than military jurisdictions with respect to impaired driving due to the exclusive federal, exclusive state and concurrent jurisdiction arrangements in most CONUS situations.
- Outline for the participants the administrative and treatment consequences of an impaired driving arrest whether in exclusive federal, exclusive state or concurrent jurisdiction.
- Discuss the administrative consequences relating to deployment, separation, reenlistment, of sanctions such as driver's license suspension, probation, and referral to treatment programs.
- Explain the available resources for assessment and treatment related to impaired driving events for military members, veterans and the family members of military members through Social Actions, military and Veterans Administration facilities.
