Maximum quantity available reached.

 

If you operate a vehicle that requires a CDL on the public roads and have more than one employee in the company, you are required to get DOT Supervisor Training. 

To verify if you are subject to the drug and alcohol regulations, please visit DOT Website-Am I Covered? for more information!

DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training

The Department of Transportation requires any supervisor who sends or refers employees for drug and/or alcohol testing under a DOT Certified Drug Testing Program, receive training in the administration and implementation of these procedures. Additionally, their training must include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances.

As per OSHA 49 CFR Parts 40, 199.241 (for pipeline operators) and OSHA 49 CFR 382.603 (for motor carriers), this online course will help you meet the training requirements for Drug & Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion Training. Not ALL employees (usually direct Supervisors or Managers) are required to have this training; however, most companies with a workforce that has an attrition rate higher than 25% annually choose to train additional management and supervisory personnel to ensure they can properly identify alcohol and substance abuse issues in the interim.

Train your supervisors to ensure your federally regulated workplace is free from impaired employees! According to OSHA 49 CFR, all persons designated to supervise employees must receive at least 60 minutes of alcohol training and 60 minutes on controlled substance abuse. This online course will help satisfy both of these requirements! Training must include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances.

This online training program will ensure your supervisors can develop and maintain a complete testing program while limiting the company's legal and regulatory exposure affiliated with these types of activities.

If you have employees who are required to receive pre-employment drug/alcohol testing and random drug and alcohol testing under a DOT mandated testing program managed by the company or a Third Party Administrator (TPA), you must have supervisors trained to recognize suspicious behavior.
