DER Compliance: A Train the Trainer Workshop $399.00 Member $549.00 Non-Member 

May 27, 2020 8AM – 5PM

May 30, 2020 8AM – 5PM

Course Overview

This course will give representatives of Consortia/Third Party Administrators (C/TPAs) the tools they need to provide such training to Designated Employer Representatives (DERs) and help ensure a fully compliant testing process as prescribed in 49 CFR Part 40. This program, which allows for DERs to become certified through DATIA, aims to ensure that DOT-mandated drug and alcohol testing is performed in a professional and consistent manner, maintaining confidentiality for the donor, and compliance with all applicable regulations. DATIA training already exists for collectors, C/TPAs, and MRO Assistants—this training provides standards and education for individuals making up the final link in the mandated drug testing chain.

* For those new to drug and alcohol testing or looking for a primer, DATIA recommends taking the Ins & Outs of Drug & Alcohol Testing online course prior to taking this course. Doing so will provide a primer allowing you to enhance your educational experience during this course.

Course Objective

The objective of the DER Compliance course is to provide instruction and resource material that enables the DER to: fully understand the role of the DER in the drug testing process; define issues that arise during the drug testing process and what action is required of DERs; learn more about the DER’s relationship with other players in the testing process, including C/TPAs, collectors, MROs, EAPs, laboratory personnel, and SAPs; ensure complete compliance with federal rules and regulations; and better serve the employees they work with by being knowledgeable about the entire mandated drug and alcohol testing process; learn the differences in testing procedures for each transportation mode; better define his/her role in assuring DOT and company policy compliance; provide services meeting standards of professionalism, accountability, and ethical behavior; and implement practical application of industry standards and procedures

Who Should Attend

This training course is intended for representatives of C/TPAs who will, in turn, provide training for their client DERs. Training materials are available from DATIA. After attending training hosted by a C/TPA, the DERs may take an exam administered by DATIA and become a Certified DER (C-DER). DATIA’s training programs are developed by professionals within the industry and reviewed by committees of their peers for accuracy and relevancy. This course for DERs establishes high standards in another crucial step of the drug testing process.


Once you have completed DATIA’s DER Compliance course, you may hold training courses for your client company DERs and other DERs in your area using materials provided by DATIA. Once they have completed a course with your professional instruction, the DERs may take an exam and become certified through DATIA.

Also, this program has been approved for 4 (General) recertification credit hours toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute. Please be sure to note the program ID number on your recertification application form. For more information about certification or recertification, please visit the HR Certification Institute website.
