I have a cousin who is going to UTI with me... and I just filled him in on the drug testing policy... We're starting pretty soon... and we're just wondering what exactly they do. Is it a private urinary deal or what?

Not that he's worried about failing or anything:secret2:. The idea just aroused our curiosity.:nod: Thanks a lot.

Well if your clean you have nothing to worry about right? I just got done being with "penis patrol" about 2 weeks ago and I had to be that guy that watches you take a piss... if they do it like the military you have to piss in a cup while somone watches you. I doubt they will do a hair test since thats more expensive to do.

They will only test if they are suspicious. One guy got kicked out the whole time I was there. He came in to school at 6 in the morning wreeking of hard alcohol. So they drug tested him too and he was out.

Wow really? Somebody told me that they drug test everybody right in the beginning...
That's a relief.

I graduated a couple years ago. Very few people got drug tested while I was there. They called the drug testing "random" but I think they only tested people that they suspected. I had a few friends that smoked pot the whole time they were in school and never got tested. Just don't go to school fucked up.

If you come back clean they may not accept you. Just drink some alcohol the night before and show them you're not too good for their program.

you going to the avondale campus?

drug testing is done at random, but the entire time I've been there I've only seen 3 in my classroom over 9 months, and usually they just pull 1-3 people from each class. they do not test upon admission. I know of two people that got hit, but I hang out with a lot of the school's stoner crowd. They use mouth swab tests, and you'll know when your being tested because you'll get a slip at the start of class telling you to go to some random classroom, so pop in some chew or chug some scope or do whatever you have to do when you get that slip!

if you do get busted, first offense is a re-phase (re-take the 3 week class) and you take some gay class over the weekend. second is the same with a 6 week vacation, and third is termination...but i've never heard of anybody getting hit 3 times.

Why would a college drug test people? This just sounds stupid to me. Really why does it matter if someone does drugs if it doesnt affect anyone else?

Interesting... so, you are PAYING a college to attend... and they can random drug test you and kick you out. Very interesting.

I am going to guess that the reason they do this is to protect everyone in the shop. More chances to forget to do something if you are high/drunk.

I do know that if you get into a program like BMW/Mercedes/VW that everyone is required to take a drug test on the first day.

If your future is important theeeeeen don't do something that might get you kicked out of school :thumb: If you can't figure that out on your own then maybe higher education really isn't for you.

And if you can't figure out why they might feel the need to do these tests watch the video. Sure accidents happen but minimizing them is the name of the game.

While I was at NTI, I only ever heard of one count of drug testing. Which was after a "pipe" was found in the Auto Trans lab. Ended up being the teachers apparently haha. I did just start the Volvo MSAT on Nov. 15 and we had to go take drug test the first day. Pee test. No big deal though for me as I have never been involved in drugs.

But like people said, it's only supposed to be random or if they think you are messed up. So now it's up to you: stop and not have to worry about it, or just don't go in messed up and hope you don't get hit with a random.

P.S. - You need to take me for a ride! I left my Camaro back in Tennessee, and I'm missing it haha.

Has anyone gone to the campus in sac california and would have any insight on how random they drug test? Is it the same as other campus's where they most likely test you from suspicion. Or does a crazy hair grow up their ass and one day they ramdonly test? Please help i start september 10th and i just cheifed the other night.

If your worried about getting caught then you have already decided that doing drugs is more important then your schooling since your not willing to stop so IMO do want you want just don't cry when you get kicked and lose out on the money spent.

Not a beer drinker, but my cousin just posted on Facebook that he tried it tonight and really enjoyed it. He said it tastes like a mix of regular bud and amberboch. He also said that the cool ranch taco from Taco Bell was a let down.

Depends on your line of work... in IT/Software... if they fired everyone who couldn't pass a drug test they'd lose half their staff. Most of the tech companies out here don't give a crap about pot. Hell, there's a guy from Microsoft who is in line to open a weed store here once the law is fully implemented.. he says his goal is to be the "Neiman Marcus of Marijuana".

I personally think if you have a job that does not involve a life / death risk, there's absolutely no viable reason for you to be drug tested.

couldnt agree more. in fact last time I read something about marijuana and its usage they claim that roughly 58% of americans smoke so if everyone had to pass a drug test over half of america would be unemployed :lol:

I enver got tested when I worked for the city either, they said it was the least of their concerns only catch is if youre high on the job or they suspect it you can be tested and will be fired. but I dont think anyone should be stoned or getting high at work anyways.

I would file that under a situation that involves life/death/grave injury. But you're talking about someone coming to work stoned. I don't think there are many people that have a problem with laws against people being at work stoned. I'm thinking more of the guy that comes to work flat sober, and goes home after work and smokes out, then comes back the next day sober again.

But yeah, some people would have a harder time handling that than others.

^exactly. My dad is a network engineer for Kaiser and they are strict about drug testing, but only if you show signs. But there is a life/death involvement with him, if something big goes down so does their medical equipment
