Tribal Transit Drug & Alcohol Training


Tribal Transit Drug and Alcohol Training September 14-16, 2016 Artesian Hotel, Sulphur, Oklahoma

If you have ever asked yourself:

  • Is our Tribal Transit Drug and Alcohol Program truly in compliance?
  • Does our policy need updating? Does transit need a separate policy from the tribal policy?
  • How do I check for the “randomness” of random testing?
  • How do other tribal program managers manage their programs?
  • As the program manager, can I conduct the required employee and supervisor training?

Then you and your staff will want to attend this training designed specifically for Tribal Transit Drug and Alcohol programs.

COST: To participate it is $189 per person. This program may qualify for RTAP reimbursement. Check with your state DOT for their requirements. If you would like help completing forms, please contact Kristen, kjoyner@swta.org.

HOTEL INFORMATION: Reserve your room early to get the group rate ($89/night) by calling (855) 455-5255. The group code is SWTA16.

Hosted By: Chickasaw Transit and the Chickasaw Nation
