NON-DOT GENERAL DESIGNATED EMPLOYER REPRESENTATIVE TRAINING (DER)
This course is designed for non-DOT, meaning not regulated by the department of transportation, Designated Employer Representatives (DER), aka drug and alcohol testing program manager, to provide training on managing a drug-free workplace program.
