Free Administrative Hearings Office Implied Consent Act Online Trainings

The Administrative Hearings Office will be conducting free online Zoom trainings covering all aspects of hearings pursuant to the Implied Consent Act (ICA). The trainings are for all hearing participants, including attorneys and law enforcement officers, across New Mexico who attend ICA License Revocation/MVD hearings. In addition to hearing directly from the hearing officers that conduct these hearings, training participants will also hear insights from an experienced law enforcement officer and an experienced defense attorney about the hearing process. For participant scheduling convenience, we are offering three opportunities to attend the training: Friday, March 26, 2021 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm; Monday, April 26, 2021 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm; or on Friday, May 21, 2021 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
