Probable Cause Training for CDL Supervisory Personnel (VIRTUAL)

In partnership with the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS), the Delaware Valley Workers’ Compensation and Property & Liability Trusts are pleased to offer 50 full scholarships (limit four scholarships per member entity) for the virtual program Probable Cause Training for CDL Supervisory Personnel.

State and federal regulations require every employer who has commercial driver’s license (CDL) employees driving vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating or operating weight of more than 26,001 pounds used on public roads to participate in a drug and alcohol testing program. These same regulations also require that such employers train all personnel who supervisor employees with CDL’s in handling suspected on-the-job drug or alcohol use. This workshop addresses these federal requirements by providing supervisory personnel with a working understanding of the federal CDL regulations, including on-the-job probable cause procedures.

Cost:  $35 for PSATS members, $45 non-members. You must register directly with PSATS (see below).
