Certified Professional Collector Trainer Course – DATIA, Las Vegas

Joe Reilly will teach the Certified Professional Collector Trainer® Course (CPCT) during the upcoming Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association Annual Conference in Las Vegas starting on April 26, 2016.  The CPCT training course will be held on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 – 8 am–5 pm and again on Friday, April 29, 2016 – 8 am–5 pm at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The course focuses on the DOT urine specimen requirements for DOT urine collections.  Attendees are required to have experience and previous qualifications as a DOT urine specimen collector.  Attendees will receive instruction to be trainers and receive resources to enable these new trainers to develop and teach a collector training program that will deliver information to fellow company-employed collection personnel, helping them become proficient in providing collection services according to industry regulations and standards; that ensure the privacy, integrity, and security of the donor and the specimen.

DOT urine specimen drug testing is required for safety-sensitive positions in companies regulated by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT).  49 CFR Part 40 outlines these regulations affecting multiple industries including trucking, bus, rail, mass transit, and oil/gas pipeline.

DATIA’s Certified Professional Collector Trainer® (CPCT) training program meets and exceeds DOT’s Training Requirements for collectors as outlined in 49 CFR Part 40.31 and in DOT’s “How Can I Become a Collector for DOT Testing.” The DATIA course for DOT specimen collections is widely recognized as the standard in the industry.  Each participant upon satisfactorily completing the course will receive a certificate as a Certified Professional Collector Trainer (CPCT).

Reilly, former Chairman of the Board of DATIA; has since 2004 served as an M-­CPCT (Master Certified Professional Collector Trainer) for DATIA’s collector certification program.  Known throughout the United States as an expert in the drug testing industry, Reilly has served as an expert witness and has provided consulting, speaking engagements and training programs for many organizations including the US Small Business Administration (SBA), the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), the US Department of Education, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the Washington DC Department of Public Works, the Florida Office of Drug Control, the Florida Department of Corrections, the Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA), the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (MAPBS), Florida Small Business Development Centers (SBDC), and numerous Chambers of Commerce.
