Course Overview

Everyone knows that alcohol, drugs and driving don’t mix. Yet drivers who are “under the influence” are still a major cause of accidents. To help ensure that drivers of commercial vehicles as well as other transportation employees with “safety sensitive” jobs such as mechanics and warehouse workers stay drug- and alcohol-free, the Federal Transportation Employee Testing Act requires motor carriers to establish rigorous drug and alcohol testing programs. This two-part course has been created to satisfy the DOT's 2-Hour Reasonable Suspicion training requirements.

Altantic Training's course on "DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors: Part I" discusses the Department of Transportation’s drug and alcohol regulations, the concept of “reasonable suspicion”, situations that justify “reasonable suspicion” testing, signs that an employee may be using drugs, and the procedures that managers and supervisors should use to administer “reasonable suspicion” testing fairly and effectively.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Regulations
  • An Overview of “Reasonable Suspicion” Testing
  • What Makes Suspicion “Reasonable”?
  • General Signs of Substance Abuse
  • Behavioral Signs of Drug Abuse
  • Physical Signs of Drug Abuse
  • …and more.
