NOVI, Mich. - July 7, 2021– Mastery Training Services released two new training courses related to drug and alcohol testing and reasonable suspicion in the transportation industry.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about 28 people in the United States die in drunk driving crashes every day.

These new training courses help those in the transportation industry understand the process and appropriate circumstances for drug and alcohol testing.
The first course is “Reasonable Suspicion Drug And Alcohol Testing For Managers And Supervisors.” This course explores the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration guidelines to help supervisors decide whether they ought to refer an employee for immediate drug and alcohol testing using reasonable suspicion as the basis for the referral. The course demonstrates how to recognize signs and symptoms of substance abuse, and how to approach an employee suspected to be abusing drugs or alcohol.
The second course, “Drug And Alcohol Testing For CDL Drivers,” teaches CDL drivers about drug and alcohol testing and the role it plays in keeping everyone safe on the roadway. The course explores the federal regulations mandating drug and alcohol testing for all transportation employees, including when testing is conducted, removal of employees, return-to-duty rules, and getting help for substance abuse.
