Course Overview

FAA reasonable suspicion training and reasonable cause training for supervisors is designed to assist employers with ensuring compliance and safety in the aviation industry. Supervisors of safety-sensitive personnel covered by federal aviation regulations must be capable of making determinations to test an employee suspected of prohibited drug or alcohol use. This  training must be supplemented with

The FAA regulations 14 C.F.R. § 120.115(c) and 120.217(d) govern the training requirements for supervisors who will make reasonable cause and reasonable suspicion determinations for employees covered by the FAA drug and alcohol testing regulations. Section 120.115 covers training requirements for determinations to test based on suspicion of controlled substance (drug) use while Section 120.217 covers training requirements for determinations to test based on suspicion of alcohol use. Together, they require 60 minutes of training on specific, contemporaneous physical, behavioral, and performance indicators of probable drug use and 60 minutes of training on the detection of symptoms of alcohol misuse based on specific, contemporaneous, articulable observations concerning the appearance, behavior, speech or body odors of the employee.

This course is designed to comply with these regulations as part of an FAA-regulated employer’s overall Employee Assistance Program (EAP). Use this course to comply with the recurrent/refresher training requirements and use the initial training course to comply with the initial training requirements found in 14 C.F.R. § 120.115(c)(4).

Our FAA Reasonable Suspicion training course is a 2.5-hour training course that includes the required 60-minutes of training on alcohol misuse and 60-minutes on substance use.
