Reasonable Suspicion

The Drug & Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion for Supervisors program is a one-time, mandatory FMCSA program.  The course meets the requirements of 49 CFR §382.603 for all supervisors of drivers who are subject to the controlled substance and alcohol DOT testing regulations.

For more information regarding this seminar, please contact Mary Grace Johansen at (603) 415-8402.

Do all of your supervisors of CDL drivers have the training to recognize alcohol and drug abuse?

DOT regulations specifically require all persons designated to supervise drivers to receive 60 minutes of mandatory training on alcohol misuse and 60 minutes on controlled substances use.

This DOT-required training shows supervisors what to look for when determining reasonable suspicion. This training illustrates a variety of scenarios and gives supervisors the confidence they need to handle difficult situations.

Certificates will be handed out after the seminar.

Per CFR 382.603

Each employer shall ensure that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and receive at least an additional 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. The training will be used by the supervisors to determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to require a driver to undergo testing under § 382.307. The training shall include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances. Recurrent training for supervisory personnel is not required.
