Designated Employer Training (DER)

This is for the person at your company who is in charge of the drug and alcohol testing program. The Designated Employer Representative or DER is specifically required under DOT regulations for DOT-regulated companies, including the six DOT agencies: FMCSA, FAA, PHMSA, FRA, FTA, and USCG. Learn the regulations and avoid fines and penalties for non-compliance. Get prepared for an audit of your DOT drug & alcohol testing program.

If you are managing a DOT-regulated drug-testing program, this webinar training is for you. All attendees will receive a certificate of completion.

Third-Party Administrator and Random Program Management Training

This training is for the third-party administrator (TPA) who provides drug and alcohol testing programs for employers. The TPA or Consortium/Third Party Administrator ( C/TPA) must be knowledgeable about regulations, consortium programs, industry standards, and best practices to be able to assist employers with program management. This training will also benefit those planning to start a drug and alcohol testing business.

DOT Urine Specimen Collector Training

Are you looking to become a mobile drug-testing collector? Are you employed by a facility and need your urine-specimen-collector training and certification? Do you need your five-year refresher training required by DOT? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this training is for you. To be qualified as a DOT urine-specimen collector, you must receive training on all steps necessary to complete a collection properly as well as on how to deal with problem collections. You also need to complete proficiency demonstrations, commonly called five mock collections. This training does not include the five mock collections, but they are available through this link: order remote mock collections. If you are looking for a Train-the-Trainer program for DOT urine collections, this is a custom program with information at Train the Trainer.

All attendees for our DOT Urine Specimen Collector Training will receive a certificate. Once they complete the mock collections, they will be eligible to perform DOT specimen collections.

Supervisor Training—Reasonable Suspicion

This training for supervisors will teach them about making reasonable suspicion determinations when an employee might be using drugs or alcohol at work. For DOT-regulated employers, this training is required. For non-DOT employers, this training is highly recommended and is a best practice. This training is all about safety. Employees using drugs or alcohol at work are safety risks and must be removed from the workplace and given a reasonable suspicion drug and alcohol test. Supervisors must be knowledgeable and comfortable with this process. This training meets the DOT requirements for the one hour of drug information and one hour of alcohol information for supervisor training. All attendees will receive certificates of completion. DOT agencies suggest that this training be repeated regularly. It is recommended that supervisors take this training every two or three years.

DOT Collector Best Practices and How-to Review

This is a refresher for collectors who are already certified. It will cover problem collections and best practices. Learn about real-life experiences in the collection process and how to best handle different types of problem collections. When there is a botched collection, we always find that the collector did not retain some of the initial training.  Avoid problems with collections that could lead to a potential lawsuit, requiring you to attend depositions and a court trial. You can avoid making mistakes in the collection process by attending this training. All attendees will receive a certificate of completion. If you are a brand-new collector, you should take the complete DOT Urine Specimen Collector Trainingbefore taking this course.

Starting a Drug Testing Business

This has been our most requested webinar for the last few years. If you are planning to start a drug testing business or a mobile collector business, this webinar is for you. Learn the ins and outs of the drug testing industry and of starting a drug testing business. Joe Reilly presented this webinar for the Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA merged with NDASA in 2023) in March 2012, and this webinar has been the most viewed DATIA webinar of all time.

This is an initial workshop for those interested in starting a drug testing business. The training will cover business rudiments and licenses, facilities, and equipment needed as well as how to find vendors and clients for your business. Learn how to set up your business, what items to sell, what markets to look for, what training you need, and much more. Get direct counsel on what to do and what not to do. Receive answers to the top ten inquiries posed by those considering a new drug-testing business.
