Screening Test Techician (STT) Training   


Course Overview

The DOT seeks to ensure that every alcohol Screening Test Technician (STT) who will be conducting DOT alcohol screening tests on transportation workers can do them correctly. In order to do so, the STT must be proficient in the use of DOT-approved Alcohol Screening Devices (ASDs) and proficient in the procedures of 49 CFR Part 40. This course is for the limited purpose of training individuals to conduct proper DOT procedures and applies to Qualification and Refresher Training.
