Reasonable Suspicion Supervisor Training
49 C.F.R. 382.603 requires that all persons designated to supervise drivers receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and an additional 60 minutes of training on drug misuse. This course meets the requirements of this regulation, providing pertinent information and instruction to driver supervisors on the signs and symptoms of alcohol and drug use to help them determine whether reasonable suspicion exists to order a DOT-mandated drug/alcohol test.
