DOT Drug & Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors-Online Training


COURSE DESCRIPTION: If you operate vehicles that require a CDL on the public roads and you have more than one employee in the company, you are required to get DOT Supervisor Training. To verify if you are subject to the drug and alcohol regulations, please visit


As per 49 CFR Parts 40, 199.241 (for pipeline operators) and 382.603 (for motor carriers) this online course will help you meet the training requirements for Drug & Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion Training. Not ALL employees (usually direct Supervisors or Managers) are required to have this training however, most companies with a workforce that has an attrition rate higher than 25% annually choose to train additional management and supervisory personnel to insure they can properly identify alcohol and substance abuse issues in the interim.


Train your supervisors to insure your federally regulated workplace is free from impaired employees! According to 49 CFR, all persons designated to supervise employees must receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol and 60 minutes on controlled substance abuse. This online course will help satisfy those requirements!


The Department of Transportation requires any supervisor who sends or refers employees for drug and/or alcohol testing under a DOT certified drug testing program, receive training in the administration and implementation of these procedures. Additionally, their training must include the physical, behavioral, speech and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and use of controlled substances.


If you have employees who are required to receive pre-employment as well as random drug and alcohol testing under a DOT mandated testing program, that is managed by the company or a Third Party Administrator (TPA) you must have supervisors trained to recognize suspicious behavior. This online training program will ensure your supervisors can develop and maintain a complete testing program while limiting the company's legal and regulatory exposure affiliated with these types of activities.



QuestionDo "Owner Operators" need Reasonable Suspicion Training?

Answer:  Individual Owner Operators who DO NOT employ additional drivers AND are currently enrolled in a DOT Drug and Alcohol Program are NOT required to undergo DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training for Supervisors.

Question: I've already had DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training. IS there a "refresher" requirement or do I need to take it again?

Answer: There is NO "recurrent training" requirement for DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training. That being said there ARE situations where you STILL must complete the training again: Supervisors who have completed this training (regardless of when) with their CURRENT employer are not required to take Reasonable Suspicion Training again. If you took the training with a DIFFERENT employer, this exemption does not apply. You should be aware that if you are a Supervisor and are not comfortable with your skills or knowledge or it has been a long time since you went through your initial training, consider taking the training again. While there is no refresher requirement, DOT requires that you have a working knowledge.

Question: Does my company need a WRITTEN Drug and Alcohol Policy?

Answer: FMCSA regulations require that you develop a written policy on controlled substances use and alcohol misuse in the workplace and that the policy be provided to every driver - There are many sources for obtaining this program, some can get quite costly. As a start, we suggest you visit the U.S. Department of Transportation's website which offers (free of charge) a "Drug and Alcohol Policy Builder":
