DOT 101 Overview & Audit Survival Seminars

If you have any questions feel free to contact us at 847-836-6063

Part A:  Introduction to DOT Compliance
An overview of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, including what you need to know to maintain compliance. Training on the most important performance measures you must make part of your companies safety systems. Covered topics include introduction to the USDOT, FMCSA, and PHMSA, and how they affect you. We illustrate and spell out your regulatory obligations. You will be trained on the MCS-90 and how to safeguard your company’s safety record.

Part B:  Surviving DOT Visits and Interventions
Most everyone is afraid of the DOT. But if you understand the process, you CAN prepare properly. With this knowledge you can put aside the fear and  prepare for Compliance Reviews and other interventions with confidence, minimize damage during the visit, and take the right steps afterward.

Part C: Understanding Violations and Minimizing Fines
There are certain things that YOU REALLY NEED TO FOCUS ON because they are critical and acute violations.  We will cover these AND the new hot-button topics  introduced  in CSA.  We’ll help you prioritize your efforts so that during the coming 3-5 year period you will be prepared for either type of intervention.

Part D:  State DOT Regulations
Each state has basically adopted the federal regulations but “tweaked” them slightly. What’s the difference? When does one apply vs. the other? How do you know which to follow? And, finally, what are the particular rules in your state that MAY be beneficial to you? We answer these questions and more.

All attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion to keep on file.
