DER Training Course for FMCSA
DER Training Course for FMCSA is a 2-hour online training course that is geared toward FMCSA-regulated workplaces. Students who complete the course will understand and be able to confidently execute the responsibilities of the role.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that covered organizations, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), designate one person responsible for making formal decisions regarding the drug and alcohol testing program. This person is known as the Designated Employer Representative (DER). Their responsibility is 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 FMCSA 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.
