DOT Specimen Collectors must receive “qualification training” in order to comply with the Federal regulations included in 49 CFR Part 40. Certified Training Solutions’ online qualification training course includes the DOT-required information such as:
(1) How to complete all steps necessary to conduct a urine specimen collection correctly and the proper completion and transmission of the Custody & Control Form (CCF);
(2) How to handle “problem collections” (e.g., situations like “shy bladder” and attempts to tamper with a specimen);
(3) When is a Direct Observation collection necessary & how the directly observed collection must be conducted; along with training on monitored collection situations;
(4) What are fatal flaws and correctable flaws; and how to correct problems in collections; and
(5) The collector’s responsibility for:

  • maintaining the integrity of the collection process
  • ensuring the privacy of employees being tested
  • ensuring the security of the specimen

Federal Rules require that specimen collectors for DOT drug testing complete their full, two-component training within a 30-day or less period of time. The student should complete the course within no more than 30 days and then immediately complete the proficiency demonstration with a qualified trainer/monitor.
We offer the 2nd training component for an additional fee.
No online or self-study training program provides complete Collector training (or certification) as required by the Department of Transportation regulations. After completing this portion of the qualification training, the Collector must also demonstrate their proficiency in DOT collections by completing five (5) mock error-free collections under the observation of a qualified monitor*. (The fee for this course is for the required procedures training only, and does not include the Monitor/Trainer services for your proficiency demonstration.) The Collector student is ultimately responsible for providing and paying any fees for his or her own qualified Monitor to conduct the proficiency demonstration. By purchasing this course, you understand and agree to our Refund Policy.
We are happy to provide the proficiency demonstration training to you – see classes here.The DOT requires that Specimen Collectors repeat their training every five years — both parts of qualification training:
(1) Rules and regulations training along with training on proper collection procedures and documentation in all collection situations.
(2) as well as the proficiency demonstration (5 mock collections).
Click here for more information regarding the Qualified Monitor and Proficiency Demonstration requirements.
​*Course is self-paced, but takes the average user about 4 hours to complete.

We now offer Error Correction Training for specimen collectors!  The DOT rules require that a specimen collector who makes an error that causes a test to be cancelled (a fatal flaw) must complete error-correction training within 30 days according to 49 CFR Part 40.33(f).  Error Correction Training is offered both live (face-to-face) and via webcam. Please email Lisa@CertifiedTrainingSolutions.com or call 307-640-5859 to inquire or schedule.
