Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) (49 CFR part 382.603) require that supervisors be trained so that they can properly determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to require a driver to undergo drug and alcohol testing as required under §382.307. MTAC is pleased to announce that our new vendor partner, Fleet Screen, can provide this training through an on-line web course. The Fleet Screen course complies with federal regulations, which state that the training shall include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances.
Fleet Screen’s DOT training courses are “mode specific” and include rules and guidance from their respective agency. This means that their convenient, web-based training will train your Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulated employees. They do also have mode-specific training for Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) regulated employees as well.
Fleet Screen is willing to provide a discount on the supervisor training to MTAC members. They will offer the training for $35, down from the usual cost of $44 for each session. To take advantage of this, your company must be a MTAC member AND a participant in the drug and alcohol testing consortium run by Fleet Screen.
To take advantage of this offer, contact Fleet Screen by phone at (866) 622-0044 ext. 701 (Laurie Biggs) or ext. 204 (Shelley Sullivan).
