Everyone knows that alcohol, drugs and driving don’t mix. Yet drivers who are “under the influence” are still a major cause of accidents. To help ensure that drivers of commercial vehicles as well as other transportation employees with “safety sensitive” jobs such as mechanics and warehouse workers stay drug- and alcohol-free, the Federal Transportation Employee Testing Act requires motor carriers to establish rigorous drug and alcohol testing programs. This two-part course has been created to satisfy the DOT's 2-Hour Reasonable Suspicion training requirements.

MARCOM's course on "DOT Reasonable Suspicion Testing for Managers and Supervisors: Part I" discusses the Department of Transportation’s drug and alcohol regulations, the concept of “reasonable suspicion”, situations that justify “reasonable suspicion” testing, signs that an employee may be using drugs, and the procedures that managers and supervisors should use to administer “reasonable suspicion” testing fairly and effectively.

Topics covered in the course include:

  • DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Regulations
  • An Overview of “Reasonable Suspicion” Testing
  • What Makes Suspicion “Reasonable”?
  • General Signs of Substance Abuse
  • Behavioral Signs of Drug Abuse
  • Physical Signs of Drug Abuse
  • …and more.

Adaptive Learning

“Adaptive Learning” takes advantage of an employee’s existing knowledge to create training courses that are customized for that employee, and don’t “reteach” them things that they already know. In other words, the Adaptive Learning process determines what an employee already knows about a topic, then structures courses that contain only the information that the employee needs to complete their knowledge of the topic.

These individually customized courses eliminate the largest employee complaint about safety training (“I already know most of this stuff, so why do I have to go through this training again?!”), while potentially recapturing thousands of hours of lost productivity.

MARCOM’s Adaptive Learning courses test employees before they take the course. Then based on the questions that they answer correctly, the course itself determines if the employee knows enough about the information in each chapter in the course to “test out” of that chapter… and if they do, automatically reconfigures the course to skip those chapters.

Reconfiguring the courses in this way typically saves about 50% of an employee’s time in taking a course. Over a year’s time this can recapture a significant amount of lost productivity time for a company of any size, and result in hundreds of thousands of dollars of annual savings.
