So when you have to make a decision on drug and alcohol training, you will have a reference for you and your team

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) puts together drug and alcohol education and training requirements for supervisors and employees. We create our DOT/FMCSA supervisor training and employee education programs in light of these requirements to keep you DOT and FMCSA compliant.

The FMCSA supervisor drug and alcohol training requirements are listed in 49 CFR part 382 section 382.603, available on the FMCSA website. Here is a summary of the FMCSA Supervisor Training Requirements:

FMCSA Supervisor Training Requirements Summary

All people who supervise drivers must receive the same education that employees are required to receive.

In addition, supervisors must receive at least 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. The training is to help supervisors decide whether to require a driver to take a reasonable suspicion test. The training must include the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable alcohol misuse and controlled substance use.

FMCSA supervisor training is a one-time requirement. Recurrent training is recommended, but not required.
