Training Course Descriptions
This course informs supervisors of the components and function of drug-free workplace programs (DFWP) and the impacts to individuals. Participants will become familiar with the impacts that the abuse and misuse of drugs and alcohol has on businesses, the components of a DFWP, its benefits and key issues. Users will learn about authorization of such programs in the U.S., testing situations, and issues impacting DFWP. Course trainees will become familiar with the skills and knowledge needed for a supervisory role including the physical signs and symptoms and performance indicators of drug and alcohol use or misuse. Additionally, they will understand how to document a reasonable suspicion of drug and alcohol use in the workplace. Perhaps most importantly, learners will become familiar with the impacts of alcohol and drug use on individuals, including the how they affect the body, health risks, signs and symptoms of use, types of alcohol and drugs, impacts to the workplace, and how to get help. This training meets the DOT requirements for the 2-hour signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol abuse/reasonable suspicion course.
The employee training course familiarizes employees with a drug-free workplace program (DFWP) and the impacts of substance use and misuse in the U.S. and the workplace. Participants will understand the authority for a DFWP, learn about the benefits, the circumstances of drug and alcohol testing, and employee rights and responsibilities. Learners will also become familiar with the impacts of alcohol and drug use on individuals, including the how they affect the body, health risks, signs and symptoms of use, types of alcohol and drugs, impacts to the workplace, and how to get help. This course meets the 1-hour employee training requirement for most states’ workers’ compensation insurance discount programs.
This short parent course, Communication: The Key to Keeping Your Kids Drug Free, is included as an added bonus for employees and supervisors who are also parents. This course provides extra support to working parents that often have nowhere to turn in times of family distress. It addresses challenges that parents face in society such as how the drug scene has changed, the influences to societal change, and gives encouraging news about drug use reduction among teens. Parents will also learn how to connect with and influence children. Finally, parents will get helpful tips to proactively address substance use prevention through enhanced communication, setting house rules, and what to do when rules are broken. This is an optional module included at no charge with the above courses.
