The Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts sponsors continuing education for judges and most years, includes "DUI Regional" training sessions. This year the DUI regional sessions are being held in four locations throughout Washington State — Lynnwood, Olympia, Kennewick, and Spokane. As of the date of this writing, the first session has been held in Lynnwood. Mr. Fox presented a comparison of the features of the current breath testing machine, the DataMaster, and the soon to be deployed machine — the Draeger 9510. There are a number of key differences between the two machines, some of which reveal potential deficiencies in the DataMaster as currently deployed. The presentation was interactive and used a "pen-enabled" PowerPoint presentation via a tablet PC, which turns such a presentation into a white-board interactive learning session.
