DER TRAINING COURSE - FRA


Course Overview

DER Training Course for FRA is a 2-hour online training course that is geared toward FRA-regulated workplaces. Students who complete the course will understand and be able to confidently execute the responsibilities of the role.

On your way to work you get a phone call from the office. A train bound for New York derailed at a sharp bend in northern Philadelphia. There appears to be minimal damage amounting to less than $10,000. The conductor was transported to the hospital mentioning that he banged his head in the crash. Over the phone, the conductor admits to being “distracted” by the radio and that he exceeded the recommended speed of 50 miles per hour for the curve, taking it at around 100 miles per hour. Does the conductor need to be tested?

If so, should it be a reasonable suspicion or a post accident test?

If not, what if he died eleven hours after the accident?

Who else would you need to test?

Course Overview

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that covered organizations, including the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), designate one person with the responsibility to make formal decisions regarding the drug and alcohol testing program. This person is known as the Designated Employer Representative (DER). It is their responsibility to develop a complete understanding of all federal regulations so that any decisions made are fully compliant.

This online course will prepare the DER with all of the knowledge and tools necessary to be successful and confident in the role. In addition, trained DERs are more likely to avoid making costly mistakes that could result in fines, penalties, and/or employee lawsuits.

Learners will receive thorough instruction that includes what it means to be a DER, the roles and responsibilities, specific requirements to comply with FRA regulations, testing and training requirements, record retention guidelines, and more.

Students learn at their own pace with our comprehensive online training program that uses videos, documents, resources, and PowerPoint presentations. Reference materials and helpful guides are also provided to assist prospective DERs in succeeding as they embark on their career. A certificate of completion can be downloaded immediately after passing the online exam.
