DOT: Air Brakes
Commercial vehicles are used every day to transport both goods and people. An important safety feature on these vehicles, the air brake system is used to control speed. The US Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates the use of air brakes and sets standards for maintaining and operating these systems to ensure they are used and maintained properly. Drivers of vehicles equipped with air brakes need to know the components of the systems, how they work, and how to use them, and make sure they're operating safely. This course introduces the components that work together to create an air brake system, guidelines on operating a vehicle equipped with air brakes, and checklists for inspecting air brake systems and the air brakes on both single and combination units. DOT: Air Brakes was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.

DOT: Cross-border Requirements (US and Canada)
The United States and Canada share the world's largest and most comprehensive trading relationship. Each year, billions of dollars' worth of goods are shipped between the countries, most by road and rail. In 1988, Canada and the US enacted free trade - an economic agreement that supports the trade of goods between countries without tariffs or other trade barriers. Mexico became a partner in 1994 in the broader North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). But although Canada and the US have aligned many trade regulations and standards, each country still has specific requirements for transporting goods across the border, particularly those goods deemed dangerous or hazardous. Prior to taking this course, you should have completed Department of Transportation (DOT) hazardous material transportation training modules 1–4. In this course you will learn about cross-border regulations for shipping dangerous goods across the US-Canada border by road or rail. You'll also cover specific additional requirements for using US regulations when importing into Canada, and Canadian regulations when importing into the US.

DOT: Drug and Alcohol Regulation Awareness for CDL Employees
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can lead to serious accidents. The US Department of Transportation (DOT) drug and alcohol testing regulations for Commercial Driver Licensed (CDL) employees are contained in 49 CFR Part 382, and 49 CFR Part 40. This course is designed to educate CDL employees about the indicators and consequences of substance abuse and alcohol misuse in the transportation industry and the US laws that relate to drug and alcohol testing. CDL employees will learn what their rights and obligations are in a DOT drug and alcohol testing program. In particular, this course covers reasonable suspicion of illicit drug and alcohol use. Employees will learn how to handle a situation where a co-worker is suspected of being under the influence, and that a DOT-trained supervisor can direct a driver to be drug or alcohol tested whenever he or she exhibits signs of drug or alcohol abuse. The supervisor's decision must be based on observations concerning the appearance, behavior, speech, or body odors of the driver. This course aims to educate learners about types of drugs and alcohol and their harmful effects, what to do if alcohol or drug use is suspected in the workplace, what to expect when drug or alcohol test results are positive and consequences thereof, and the return-to-duty process.

DOT: Reasonable Suspicion (Drug and Alcohol Awareness)
Drug and alcohol abuse by employees is a common cause of serious workplace problems faced by American companies and organizations today, including accidents and ineffective work practices. Beyond the financial burden of increased insurance costs, loss of income, and compensation payments, substance use on the job can result in life-changing injuries or fatalities. Several US laws have been enacted to combat drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace. The Department of Transportation (DOT) interprets these laws and provides employers who are responsible for transportation employees with guidelines for setting up effective drug-free programs. Employers rely on supervisors to implement these guidelines; for example, through being vigilant in identifying and addressing instances of workplace substance abuse and alcohol misuse. In particular, supervisors of safety-sensitive employees must monitor staff members to determine whether or not there are sufficient grounds to refer the individuals for a reasonable-suspicion drug or alcohol test, and then follow the required testing procedures. This course explores the causes, indicators, and consequences of alcohol misuse and substance abuse in the US transportation industry. It describes the US laws that relate to drug and alcohol testing of transportation employees and outlines DOT regulations that enforce compliance among transportation employers. The course also discusses the supervisor's role in referring employees for testing based on a reasonable suspicion that a safety-sensitive worker is using or under the influence of alcohol or drugs while on duty. DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulation 49 CFR Part 382.603 (Alcohol Misuse and Controlled Substances Use Information, Training, and Referral - Training for supervisors) requires supervisors of commercial motor vehicle drivers who operate vehicles that require a commercial driver license to take 60 minutes of training on alcohol misuse and 60 minutes of training on controlled substances use. This course is designed to meet the requirements of 49 CFR Part 382.603. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review, however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments. Nothing herein, or in the course materials, shall be construed as professional advice as to any particular situation with respect to compliance with legal statutes or requirements.
