Course Description

Federal law specifies several situations in which motor carrier employees who perform “safety-sensitive” duties, such as drivers, are required to undergo drug or alcohol testing. One of these is when there is a “reasonable suspicion” that they may be “under the influence”.

Atlantic Training's new "Reasonable Suspicion Drug and Alcohol Testing for Managers and Supervisors" course discusses the concept of “reasonable suspicion”, the types of situations that justify reasonable suspicion testing, and the procedures that managers and supervisors should use to administer it fairly and effectively.

“Reasonable Suspicion Drug and Alcohol Testing for Managers and Supervisors” uses a powerful combination of full-motion, high-definition video filmed in real workplace locations along with audio, text and colorful graphics to provide the most cost-effective training available today.


Topics covered in the courses include: 

  • An Overview of Reasonable Suspicion Testing
  • What Makes Suspicion “Reasonable”?
  • Recognizing Signs of Substance Abuse
  • Approaching the Employee
  • … and more
