List the Laws and Regulations That Govern DOT, FAA, and FMCSA Drug Testing Programs

Each agency has specific rules and regulations behind their drug and alcohol testing programs. The rules and regulations, while specific and detailed, are straightforward enough. And ignorance is neither a good policy nor a good excuse.

We make sure you understand these laws and regulations by allowing you to put the information to use while taking our training. To learn something, you not only have to see it, but you also have to put it to use. Through interactive tools in our training, we allow you to do just that.

The Six DOT Drug Testing Program Components

DOT drug and alcohol testing programs have six main parts. We go into detail on each part.

You need to understand the structure of DOT drug testing programs if you are to carry out your role as DER or supervisor effectively.

The Six DOT Drug Testing Situations

We go into detail on the six DOT drug and alcohol testing situations: random, post-accident, reasonable suspicion, post-rehab, follow up, and pre-employment drug and alcohol testing.

Each testing situation has its own rules and regulations behind it, its DOs and DON’Ts. If you are to carry out each situation correctly, which as the DER or supervisor you will certainly have to do, you may find yourself in a sticky situation.

Being uninformed is only going to lead to stress and frustration. We help you avoid that through the right information. We help you make it easy!

The DOT Drug Testing Rules

The DOT requires that you use a 5 panel drug and alcohol test. That means that you are testing for alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, opiates (aka narcotics), and phencyclidine (PCP).

Then you must know how to carry out a drug and alcohol test properly; there are specific DOT drug testing rules. Knowing these steps ensures that everyone stays safe and you get an accurate DOT drug testing panel in return of the drug test.

Check out our FMCSA DER Training and FAA DER Training, both of which include this course.

If you are a supervisor, take a look at our FAA supervisor training or FMCSA supervisor training programs. We cover the same material, and the training meets DOT training requirements.
