The OTA is hosting a DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training on Wednesday, September 6 from 10am - 12pm. This virtual training is specifically designed for supervisors and employees to gain confidence in regards to their reasonable suspicion testing responsibilities and to help keep impaired drivers off the road.
Led by Ruth Bowdish, Managing Director of On Demand Healthcare, this two-hour training course includes sixty minutes of training on alcohol misuse, and sixty minutes on controlled substance abuse. This course will ensure that all supervisors in attendance receive the required training, as outlined in 49 CFR Part 40 Section 382.603, to determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to test a driver pursuant to 49 CFR Part 40 Section 382.307. Attendees will learn indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances. A Certificate of Completion will be emailed following the training.
Attendees must be present during the live training just as if they were taking the training in person. Recording and/or distribution of remote trainings is not permitted.
