Getting to Know: Jan Kornmann, New DATIA Board Member


Welcome to the DATIA Board of Directors! Why were you interested in


joining the Board? I want to use my skills


to help DATIA reach its objectives in education, awareness, and geting the information to people and companies in the industry. DATIA’s mission is to promote


the highest possible standards of professionalism and quality control in the drug and alcohol testing industry, and develop and oversee education, certification, and accreditation programs for the drug and alcohol testing industry.


Tell us about


KorManagement and your current role? Tell us about your role with DATIA as well?


My current role is consulting, training and collections. Training is a major part of KorManagement Services which includes: Designated Employer Representative (DER) training, reasonable suspicion supervisor training, collector training, Certified Professional Collectors (CPCs), Breath Alcohol Technicians (BATs), Screening Test Technicians (STT), and Certified Lifeloc Operator Calibration Technicians (C-LOCT), provisional instructors to train within their companies BATs and C-LOCTs. As an authorized distributor of Lifeloc Evidential Breath Testers, I am a master trainer through Lifeloc Technologies. I do urine drug collections and breath alcohol testing for companies in my area but work closely with other


38 datia focus


collection companies for the good of our companies in South Dakota to have qualified collectors. Because of my affiliation with DATIA,


I have accomplished many things. I have atended DATIA conferences since 2003. Atending each of these has enriched me personally and has played a part in the growth of my company. I have been a Certified Professional Collector Trainer® (CPCT) since 2001 and a Regional Certified Professional Collector Trainer® (R-CPCT) since 2002. I am also a member of the DATIA


Education Commitee. I also have been a DATIA Certified DER (C-DER) since 2006. I am also currently the instructor for DATIA’s Ins and Outs of Drug and Alcohol Testing course for one of DATIA’s newest courses the Collector Refresher and Mock Collections course.


What have been some of your major accomplishments?


Knowing that my training has influenced many individuals to follow the guidelines published for DOT and HHS along with DATIA standards is my greatest accomplishment. Just knowing that there are people in our industry who do feel the need to comply with the law makes it worth all the time I spend with each individual. Tis has been a major accomplishment for me as I have trained many individuals all over the United States and Canada.


What do you hope to accomplish during your time on the Board?


I hope to continue to inform and educate the members of changes in our industry and continue my work on the Education


I want to use my skills to help DATIA reach its objectives in education, awareness, and getting the information to people and companies in the industry.


Committee to add courses relevant to our industry. I will assist in DATIA’s efforts to


inform and educate members on the drug and alcohol use and misuse and will educate people in my community and wherever needed.


What advancements do you see in the drug and alcohol testing industry in the next 5 years?


Te biggest obstacle I see in our industry are changes. Of major importance are electronic custody and control forms (eCCFs) and how they will help with errors and omissions. Also, when and how hair testing and oral fluid testing will be accomplished. It will be interesting to see how these changes will affect non- DOT testing. Marijuana legalization and how the laws will affect our industry and the safety in the workforce is yet to be determined but will be an interesting discussion. Te hope is that studies will be done in order to have beter testing for marijuana in the workplace to determine recent use and its affect on the safety in the workplace. ❚
