2017 LPTA Conference
Webinar: Drug & Alcohol Reasonable Suspicion
Tuesday, November 14, 12:00-2:30 PM CST
CALACT has generously made this webinar available to SWTA members.
This class satisfies the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Transit Administration (USDOT-FTA) two-hour training requirement for supervisors per 49 CFR Part 655.14(b)(2). Agency officials must be trained in making the determination of when to administer reasonable suspicion drug and alcohol tests while managing employees with safety-sensitive job functions. Seminar participants will learn to identify the signs and symptoms and physical, behavioral, speech and performance indicators of probable drug use and alcohol misuse, and to make fair and reliable reasonable suspicion drug and alcohol testing referrals of transit employees performing safety-sensitive functions. Certificates of completion will be provided to participants.
Due to limited space available, we are asking organizations to limit agency-participation to five staff for the course. Each staff must use an individual computer as quizzes and tests will be administered through-out and a continuous active-status must be observed by organizers. These techniques are required in order to provide certification to trainees
Webinar for User Managers on Changes to the TrAMS and NTD User Access and User Management Modules
FTA is upgrading its Federal Access Control and Entry System (FACES), the portal that allows FTA’s grant recipients and National Transit Database (NTD) reporters to access the platform that houses TrAMS and the NTD. The new FACES platform will provide a single point of entry for multiple FTA systems and will include additional transparency and security features. The portal later will expand to host future systems.
FTA will host webinars for grantees and NTD reporters to provide details on the new system and discuss and demonstrate user access and management under the new modules. The training is focused primarily on grantee user managers.
Registration is required. Group registration is encouraged to ensure access for all who wish to participate. Sessions will be recorded and posted.
