Save Time & Money With Dot Collector Training

At PAW, we offer on-site or virtual DOT collector training for companies in Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. We will educate and qualify select members of your team such as, on-site clinical staff, emergency medical technicians, laboratory assistants, security officers or selected management/staff personnel to conduct DOT urine specimen collections.

The Importance Of DOT Specimen Collector Training

The Department of Transportation (DOT) prohibits drug and alcohol use by employees holding safety-sensitive positions in fields such as, trucking, community transportation, air travel, and the country’s pipelines and railroad system. In order for your organization to remain compliant with the DOT’s regulations, you—as an employer—must ensure that regular employee drug testing is taking place to promote public safety and reduce workplace accidents.

In order to conduct DOT urine specimen collections, , the collector must be properly trained and have demonstrated proficiency in various scenarios without error.

DOT itself does not provide urine specimen collector training, which is why we are here to assist. Our qualified instructors meet all requirements to provide the training and oversee proficiency. By having your employees qualified to conduct testing, you will save valuable time and money by eliminating the need to hire an outside testing company.
