This program is intended to provide guidance and training to those individuals who will be primarily conducting Department of Transportation (DOT) regulated urine specimen collections and occasionally Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) collections. To be permitted to act as a collector, you must be knowledgeable about 49 CFR Part 40, “Procedures for Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Programs,” and DOT agency regulations applicable to the employers for whom you perform collections. Additionally, you must remain current on any changes to these materials by subscribing to the ODAPC list-serve, which is available at: https://www.transportation.gov/odapc/get-odapc-email-updates
(Accessed September 14, 2020). Collectors must also be knowledgeable of the Urine Collection Guidelines, Department of Transportation
(revised January, 2018) and the Department of Health and Human Services Collection Handbook for Federal Agency Workplace Drug Testing Programs
(effective October 1, 2017).
This training program contains the necessary information that is specified in 49 CFR Part 40. However, it does not represent final authority. Every effort has been taken to keep this course up-to-date with current regulations, which at the time of this course edition are found in the "DOT Urine Specimen Collection Guidelines," revised July 3, 2014 and amendments published in Vol. 82 No. 217 FR 52229 (November 13, 2017). If anything in this program conflicts with any of the documents listed above, those references prevail and must be followed.
