Welcome to Western University’s (WesternU) Controlled Substances Training program. In response to increased nationwide scrutiny by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), WesternU has established a University-wide Policy pertaining to the acquisition, use, storage and disposal of controlled substances. The Policy requires that a training program be established for persons who require access to controlled substances. This training must occur prior to authorizing an individual access to controlled substances and the training must be documented. Successful completion of this program meets these requirements.
