DOT & FMCSA: Supervisor Training for Reasonable Suspicion

This course trains supervisors on how to recognize the signs, symptoms and performance indicators of drug abuse and alcohol misuse. This is required training under DOT regulations for supervisors of safety-sensitive employees. 

Our Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors course includes the physical, behavioral, speech and performance indicators of likely alcohol misuse or controlled substance use. This course will prepare supervisors for determining whether or not reasonable suspicion exists and what to do when they suspect it.  DOT regulated companies are required to have supervisors trained for reasonable suspicion determinations. 

A certificate of completion is always generated at the completion of the course.
