Subject Matter Expert

DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors is required under federal law and mandates that certain employers involved in transportation-related fields train their supervisors in identifying the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol use and abuse. DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for supervisors is required for all personnel who manage one or more safety-sensitive employees covered by one or more federal regulation. Trucking companies, airlines, railways, and transit organizations are commonly required to train their supervisors in reasonable suspicion determinations.

This course meets or exceeds the training requirements in all 50-states and for the following federal agencies:

  • Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA),
  • Federal Aviation Administration (FAA),
  • Federal Transit Administration (FTA),
  • Federal Railroad Administration (FRA),
  • United States Coast Guard (USCG), and
  • Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).

Our DOT Reasonable Suspicion training course is a 2.5-hour training course that includes the required 60-minutes of training on alcohol misuse and 60-minutes on substance use.
After enrollment, you can start learning immediately, obtain a certificate of completion in only a few hours, and start recognizing the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol abuse.

WHY ENROLL IN THE DOT REASONABLE SUSPICION TRAINING COURSE FOR SUPERVISORS?

  • According to the DOT, employers must provide signs and symptoms training to all persons who supervise safety-sensitive employees in accordance with FMCSA regulations (49 CFR §382.603), FRA regulations (49 CFR § 219.11), FAA regulations (14 CFR § 120.223), FTA regulations (49 CFR § 655.14), PHMSA regulations (49 CFR § 199.241), and USCG regulations (49 CFR § 16.401). The purpose of this training is to enable supervisors to determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to require a driver or other safety-sensitive employee to undergo DOT testing described in 49 CFR § 40. The consequences of not completing the mandated minimum training can, at the least, result in fines and penalties and at the worst serious injuries and liability.
  • Even if you are not covered by the DOT, all supervisors making reasonable suspicion determinations should be trained on the signs and symptoms in order to avoid potential liability for ordering drug and alcohol tests with insufficient suspicion.
  • Avoid safety risks by identifying the signs and symptoms of substance use and abuse in the workplace.
  • This course is approved for continuing education credits, which means they have met very high standards by the top accrediting institutions.
  • Embed a trust seal directly on your website so your customers can instantly verify your education and commitment to a drug-free workplace.
