DOT Supervisor Training
If your company employs safety-sensitive transportation employees, the Department of Transportation requires that supervisors complete two hours of DOT supervisor training. Reasonable suspicion training for supervisors trains management staff on how to recognize possible drug or alcohol use on the job, how to document it, when they should request a reasonable suspicion drug test for an employee, and how to go about making that request.
If you have safety sensitive employees in your organization, at least one of your supervisors must take reasonable suspicion training in the form of a two-hour class on recognizing the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse and drug use. Health Street offers this flexible training program as a fun, interactive two-hour online session. Your supervisors can follow the class from their desk at work or from home.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are the DOT Training Requirements for Supervisors?
Supervisor training requirements include an hour of training to recognize alcohol abuse symptoms and behaviors, and another hour for signs of controlled substance use. They will then know when to order a reasonable suspicion screening.
How Do You Become a Drug and Alcohol Supervisor?
Supervisors of commercial driver’s license (CDL) drivers may not always recognize drug or alcohol abuse that could endanger safety. DOT supervisor training requirements ensure that they know when a driver, pilot or boat captain should be required to take a reasonable suspicion drug test.
Is Anyone Exempt from DOT Supervisor Requirements?
If you are an owner-operator of a commercial motor vehicle that’s regulated by the DOT, you are not required to undergo supervisor training. However, you must register with a consortium for random DOT-mandated drug and alcohol testing.
What Agencies Require DOT Supervisor Training?
Any organization that employs safety-sensitive workers that are covered by DOT requirements must have their supervisors take this training. These agencies include:
Be prepared for a possible DOT audit by having your supervisors trained and keeping documentation easily available.
About Our DOT Supervisor Training
How DOT Supervisor Training Works
Our online supervisor training program is designed to provide supervisors with the information they need to comply with DOT rules and regulations. In the event of a DOT audit, it is also critical that you have proof that your company is in compliance with this drug and alcohol training requirement.
When you purchase our program, you will receive a license with directions on how to access the course. Once the reasonable suspicion training is completed, the supervisor will be issued an online supervisor training certificate of completion, which can be presented as evidence of course completion.
This education and training program is two hours long and it is also available to employees for educational purposes. The courses are customized by DOT modality. We offer training modules for FMCSA (motor carrier), FTA (transit), FAA (aviation), PHMSA (pipeline), FRA (railroad) and USCG (coast guard). The certificate we issue upon completion is accepted as evidence that your company has met the drug and alcohol awareness training requirement. It is also advised that supervisors take one-hour refresher courses each year after their initial training.
Our courses cover:
The class will provide supervisors with the tools they need to know when they need to request a reasonable suspicion screening as part of the company’s drug and alcohol testing program for a drug-free workplace, and just as important, how to go about doing it.
