Department of Transportation

Drug and Alcohol Supervisor Training

This course meets the U.S. Department of Transportation requirements, as described in 49 CFR 382 and 40. A certified Texas Alcohol and Drug Testing Service instructor will provide your supervisors with a one hour alcohol and one hour drug education course. The program also motivates DOT supervisors to act and not cover-up employees with alcohol & drug problems.

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 becomes trained in the administration and implementation of these procedures. By law, anyone carrying a CDL driver’s license must have an initial drug and alcohol screen. These same employees are required to be part of a random testing plan that is managed by the company or a Third Party Administrator (TPA). This training program will ensure the supervisor develops and maintains a complete testing program while limiting the company’s legal and regulatory exposure affiliated with these types of activities.
