Reasonable Suspicion Training

TVTC offers training to make Reasonable Cause drug test or Reasonable Suspicion alcohol test determinations.

To be compliant with the Alabama Drug Free Workplace Program, all supervisors MUST annually attend supervisor training on how to recognize signs of substance abuse, how to document and collaborate signs of employee substance abuse, and how to refer substance abusing employees to the proper treatment providers.


What the supervisor can, should, SHOULD NOT and must do when confronted with possible alcohol or drug impairment meets Training Requirements for the federal Department of Transportation and state Drug Free Workplace Programs.

The Supervisor's Role training is designed to help ALL supervisors and managers, whether they supervise regulated and/or non-regulated employees, including:

  • New Supervisors
  • Experienced Supervisors needing updates
  • Supervisors needing to meet DOT requirements

Substance abuse is an issue of conduct and performance. This training seminar enables supervisors to recognize and handle job performance problems. Supervisors will gain knowledge of the types and effects of substance abuse and the methods of observation and documentation. This interactive seminar teaches supervisors how to confront workers about job performance issues. The Supervisor's Role provides an understanding of the supervisor's responsibilities in carrying out company policy and how to avoid charges of supervisor negligence.
