Extensive, and very current, in-person and webinar courses have been provided in 2018, 2019, and 2020 to deal with Bill C-46 case law as it has been developing. If you can establish that you are a Canadian defence lawyer, on-demand access is available to recordings and extensive materials. Please contact our office for more information. Since many of these 2018-2020 courses discuss Bill C-46 defence litigation strategy, they are Private.
Note: The online Udemy courses listed on this page were built prior to the December 2018 amendments to the Criminal Code. They were, however, updated to some extent, to prepare for the new legislation.

Intoxilyzer Sequences Course: If you can't take one of my in-office hands-on courses using Intoxilyzers, this is the best substitute. The focus is on the command sequences and proper operator procedure:
"Defense of a DUI Breathalyzer Charge by an Ontario Attorney"
Wet-bath Simulators Course: Under Bill C-46 our defences will be limited. Our focus will often be on the control tests and air blanks. Intermediate level students need to build a good grasp of how the wet-bath simulators are used in Ontario and how the dry gas alcohol standard is used in western Canada.
"DUI Defence in Canada: wet-bath simulator alcohol standard"
I urge Canadian lawyers to carefully read Bill C-46 which has now been passed by Parliament, implements the new "PART VIII.1 Offences Relating to Conveyances "of the Criminal Code, and went into force on December 18, 2018:
