What I Learned About MRO Training
Presented by Tom Fulmer, CPCT • National Drug Screening, Inc.

There are many aspects of drug testing. One very important aspect is the Medical Review Process—something that may not be well understood by many in the drug testing industry. Always looking to learn, I recently decided to attend the Certification training program for those seeking to become certified Medical Review Officers. The training was offered by AAMRO, a medical society dedicated to establishing national standards and certification of medical practitioners and other professionals in the field of drug and alcohol testing. This was one of the most interesting trainings I have attended and thought it would be worthwhile to share some things I learned.

CBD Oil in Your Workplace:  What No One Is Saying
Presented by Tommy Eden, Esq., Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete LLP &
C. B. Thuss, Jr., M.D., St. Vincent’s Occupational Health

CBD Oil is the latest topic of concern for employers trying to stand firm on a drug free workplace. The reason is that CBD oil is derived from the recently legalized hemp plant under the Farm Bill signed by the President in December 2018. Accordingly, for purposes of workplace drug testing, in sufficient quantities it can test positive for THC.

By the end of the webinar, learners will understand CBD oil and why it is creating such confusion in the drug testing industry, including:

  • Regulated drug testing and CBD oil usage.
  • Medical marijuana cardholders and CBD oil usage.
  •  What MROs nationwide are being taught on how to evaluate a donor who claims to be taking CBD oil, but has a positive THC test.
  •  What you should be doing now policy-wise with regard to claimed CBD oil usage by employees.
  •  What should you be telling employees about their use of CBD oil.
  •  How to put together a risk reduction strategy from both a legal and medical review officer’s points of view.

Challenges of Conducting BAT/Collector Training via Webcam/Online
Presented by Betye Bailey, Corporate Training Manager for Intoximeters

Unlike most DOT-required training under Part 40 regulations, both Breath Alcohol Training (BAT) and UDS Collector training require proficiency demonstrations that must be monitored in real time by a qualified instructor. These proficiency demonstrations (mock tests) make webcam training for BATs and Collectors very difficult to accomplish.

In this webinar, we will briefly review DOT’s training requirements for both BATs and UDS Collectors and then discuss how to meet those requirements in a fully online training course.

Topics covered include:

  • Length of time needed to cover required training elements
  • Resources needed for webcam session (e.g. partner for the mock tests)
  • Logistical considerations such as the type of webcam being used and functionality of the EBT instrument
  • Monitoring mock tests with limited visibility and a fixed viewpoint
  • Effective proofreading of ATFs and CCFs
  • Best Practices and preparations
