SESSION 1 Advanced Alcohol/ Drug Testing for Physicians Course Description:
Review the DOT procedures for DOT Alcohol and Urine Collection with emphasis on "Problem" collections, direct observation, error correction and updates in testing protocol. Learn the absorption, metabolism, and detection windows for alcohol and drugs of abuse and how to conduct a donor interview for those with Non-DOT positive laboratory results. Where allowable by state regulation, this course prepares the attendee to perform review and analysis of positive laboratory results on Non-DOT drug tests and to counsel client companies and donors. This course satisfies the DOT 5 year Re-fresher "Qualification" training requirement for those that are accredited DOT Breath Alcohol Technicians and Urine Specimen Collectors*.
It is helpful, but not required, to become an accredited DOT Urine Specimen Collector and/or a DOT Breath Alcohol Technician prior to attending this course. The DOT required training for Urine Specimen Collector and Breath Alcohol Technician is available from TeamCME thru online based training. See online course descriptions below.
This course is not a DOT Medical Review Officer course to review DOT drug test results.
*To complete 5 yr. re-fresher requirements, attendees must attend "Proficiency Demonstration" available from TeamCME in an online format at www.TeamCME.com.
