Reasonable Suspicion Testing Training

This session will help fulfill the DOT 49 CFR §382.603 minimum training requirement that all persons designated to supervise commercial motor vehicle operators must receive training that consists of 60 minutes on alcohol misuse and 60 minutes on controlled substance use. Attendees will learn 

•    how alcohol and controlled substances affect the human body 
•    practical ways to approach drivers who are suspected to be under the influence 
•    the importance of documentation in complying with these federal regulations

This training is a federal requirement for anyone who supervises or manages commercial motor vehicle operators. This includes Selectboards, Town Managers, and Road Foremen. PACIF recommends that more than one person at each municipality receive this training. First time attendees and anyone seeking a “refresher” are welcome.
