About This Training

Make plans now to attend Drug Impairment Training for Texas Employers (DITTE). This training is provided free from Our Driving Concern through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation.

This training explores the effects of alcohol and other drugs on driving and workplace performance as well as highlights the cost and lifestyle impacts of a DWI-alcohol arrest. Benefits of preventative training for employers and employees also are outlined.

We now offer three training options:
