DOT Specimen Collector Class Schedule

Hands on Training for Specimen Collectors

(Proficiency Demonstration with Qualified Monitor/Instructor)

Federal Regulations mandate that professional specimen collectors complete two (2) training components before conducting urine specimen collections for Department of Transportation drug testing (49 CFR Part 40)Certified Training Solutions offers the required real-time, hands-on Collector Proficiency Demonstration classes to complete your training & certification.  The collector student must complete the hands-on training in a way that allows for real-time interaction between the Instructor & the student.

The quickest and most convenient way to complete the hands-on training for DOT Specimen Collectors is to participate in a webcam class. Webcam classes allow you to complete your training Certification without the added hassle and expense of travelling to a training site away from your home or office.  Our experienced, qualified Collector Instructors work with trainees to ensure a successful and enjoyable training experience by webcam.  Webcam training for completing Component 2 (the Proficiency Demonstration) is low-cost and low risk.

Select your class below to REGISTER for one of Certified Training Solutions' upcoming DOT Professional Specimen Collector hands-on classes.  After successfully completing the hands-on class, in conjunction with our online procedures training course, the Collector student will be fully qualified to perform urine specimen collections for Department of Transportation (DOT) drug testing. 

Training Details & Requirements:  Before attending a Proficiency Demonstration class, the Collector Student must complete the online Procedures/Qualification training course. Click here for details regarding the online Procedures training. Our live classes cover the second component of DOT-required specimen collector training -- the proficiency demonstration. After completing the online qualification (procedures) training course, the Collector (or Collector Instructor) student must demonstrate their proficiency in DOT collections by completing five (5) consecutive and specific mock collections. Federal Regulations require that the mock collections must be error-free and completed under the observation of a qualified Monitor/Collector Instructor. Students successfully completing both components of the training are awarded a Certificate documenting their proficiency in specimen collections for DOT drug tests. Certificates are valid for 5 years, by Federal Regulation.
