As an adjunct to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Drug and Alcohol National Conference, a one-day training called “Substance Abuse Seminar”, is designed to provide essential facts and information to facilitate employers' compliance with Department of Transportation’s (DOT) 49 CFR Part 40 and the FTA’s 49 CFR Part 655. While a high-level overview of the regulations will be discussed, this seminar will focus more on the operational side of a transit agency's functions.
