What is the role of the DER?  Who is a DER?
Every company covered by Department of Transportation Regulations that employs safety-sensitive employees, must have one (or more) Designated Employer Representatives (DERs).  The role is also sometimes called Drug and Alcohol Program Manager (DAPM).  This person is in charge of administering the company’s substance abuse testing program.

The DER must have thorough knowledge of his or her responsibilities under the Federal Regulations (49 CFR Part 40). The DER has authority to make decisions about the testing process and answer questions about it.  In order to make proper decisions and handle all aspects of the DOT drug & alcohol testing program, the DER needs a complete understanding of the Rules and his or her duties under the Federal Regulations.
The course fee of just $169.99 includes not only a thorough examination of the Federal DOT rules, but also the related/companion rules for the DOT operating agency that regulates your industry.  Not only is the DER required to follow the DOT rules, but also the modal regulations for his or her industry. Additional modal supplementary courses can be added for a fee of $49.99 each.
