Course Description:  Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations Part 396 require that all commercial motor vehicles pass a periodic (annual) inspection. The inspection must be performed by a qualified individual. To help maintenance personnel understand the requirements for the inspection, OTA and the Ohio Trucking Maintenance Council are offering a two-day Periodic Inspection Training (PIT) course. This program has been developed to meet the requirements of FMCSR 396.19.

Course Instructor:   Doug Turpening is a North American Standards Trained Inspector and Trainer for the civilian side of trucking.  Doug retired from the Ohio State Highway Patrol after 27 years working in Commercial Enforcement and as a Patrol Academy instructor.  Doug is the past Executive Director of the National Safety Council of Central Ohio, and is currently a Regional Safety Manager for a major trucking company. He has presented this PIT program at every major port location across the country. He is also on the CVSA Vehicle Committee that reviews and puts forward Out of Service items for State Inspectors enforcement.

To attend this course, attendees should have:

  • Basic knowledge of commercial motor vehicles and their components and
  • At least one year of experience as a mechanic.
