J.J. Keller & Associates has introduced A Supervisor’s Guide to Reasonable Suspicion Testing, a program designed to provide DOT-required training for supervisors on what to look for when determining reasonable suspicion of alcohol misuse and controlled-substance use. At the core of the program is a closed-captioned 20-minute video that J.J. Keller says clearly explains the concept of “reasonable suspicion” and uses a variety of dramatic vignettes to illustrate different scenarios supervisors could face (including “refusal to submit to testing”).

The video can be used to train supervisors to observe drivers, document observations and approach drivers for testing. Along with the video, the program includes a trainer guide with background information, training tips and answer keys to workbook tests and exercises. Six workbooks also are included, providing 40 pages of pre- and post-tests and learning-activity scenarios, plus a tear-out receipt page to document training (along with the video, the workbooks help fulfill the required “60 + 60” hours of training).

Six Observed Behavior Reasonable Suspicion Record Forms are included for practice, and six certificates are included to document training. A “Trainer Tools” CD-ROM also is included and contains customizable transparency masters and quizzes (with answer keys), clip art, posters and a training log. The DVD format includes a special “Message for Management,” additional commentary and an interactive quiz with correct/incorrect remediation. For more information, go to
