Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Urine Specimen Collection Training
Department of Transportation (DOT) regulated urine specimen collections are an important part of employment and workplace screenings. As a collector, you will perform DOT urine specimen collections for drug and alcohol testing, return-to-duty testing, and more.
In order to perform DOT-regulated urine specimen collections, you will need to complete qualification training. Transmetron's online course in Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulated Urine Specimen Collection satisfies the requirements for qualification training.
Certified Urine Specimen Collector Training
Synopsis - Course Overview
A drug collector is a person who instructs and assists employees at a collection site, who receives and makes an initial inspection of the specimen provided by those employees, and who initiates and completes the Chain of Custody Form. The drug collector has direct, face to face contact with the employee/subject. Without the collector ensuring the integrity of the urine specimen and collection process, the test itself may lose credibility.
Under the US Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, an individual performing urine drug collection must receive Qualification Training.
Our web-based collector training procedural course satisfies the requirements for qualification training as outlined in Federal Regulations, 49 CFR Part 40.
- Contents Include:
- Monitored and observed collections
- Donor Identification
- Custody and control forms
- Procedures for urine collection
Complete the DOT required procedural training online. Once your procedural collector training is completed the DOT requires completion of five observed mock collections under various scenarios. These can be completed via webcam or in-person with an experienced and qualified trainer through Proficiency Demonstration instruction and practical mock collections.
After completion of collector qualification training and five mock collections you are fully qualified to perform DOT urine specimen collections. You will receive completion certifications for the Procedural Training and Mock Test Practicals.
