Course Objective

We have created a course especially designed to help service providers and employers provide effective and comprehensive supervisor training. This training will give supervisors the knowledge to recognize signs and symptoms of substance abuse and make reasonable suspicion determinations; saving the company time and money. Supervisor positions allow the individuals the opportunity to work closest to the workforce, naturally lending itself to keen observation of the workplace. Therefore, supervisors are a company’s best chance of catching and rectifying problems quickly and effectively. DATIA’s Developing an Effective Supervisor Training Program will give supervisors the tools needed to recognize, document, and confront problem employees in order to ensure safety. Course attendees will not only be able to recognize problems, but also train others on the signs and symptoms to watch for. Participants will be trained on DOT rules and resources in locating state laws. In this half day seminar you will gain knowledge not only for yourself, but will learn how to train others as well.
