The session is provided for transit system employees that may be responsible for making fitness for duty and reasonable suspicion determinations. The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Drug and Alcohol Testing Program regulations state that an employer must require a covered employee to submit to a drug and/or alcohol test when the employer has reasonable suspicion to believe that the employee has used a prohibited drug or misused alcohol.

The training will focus on the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of probable drug use and alcohol misuse.  Supervisors are trained in the facts, circumstances, physical evidence, physical signs and symptoms or patterns and/or behaviors that are associated with prohibited drug use or alcohol misuse. The training will include resource materials and real-life scenarios.  The training meets the requirements of 49 CFR Part 655.14 for reasonable suspicion training.
