This class was definitely the best training I’ve ever done. Santiago is very knowledgeable in the material he teaches, he gives a lot of real life examples of what he is teaching and he takes the extra time to be sure that everyone in his classes are comprehending what is being taught instead of just speaking on it and moving on. In his classes you are getting a mix of videos, pictures, life experiences, on top of a really well thought out powerpoint so no matter what kind of learner you are he has something for everyone to be able to grasp the material. He also provides a copy of his powerpoint for you in a good quality booklet amongst other really good material, cheat sheets and booklets all for you to take with you to continue learning even after you leave the class. I highly recommend this class to anyone and everyone in a safety position; it is absolutely worth your money and your time and I look forward to taking more of Santiago’s classes.

I 100% recommend Santiago’s 3-Day DOT Compliance Course. His experience as an enforcer and educational background is extremely impressive. I had very little knowledge before the class, but now he was able to make me feel more confident and gave me the tools to be able to succeed. Great instructor, highly recommend! 😊

Santiago’s training is very thorough. He teaches the material as well as how to find the answers you need after you leave the training. He has experience not only as a DOT Inspector, and State Trooper but also as a former DOT Manager. Because of his experience he’s able to offer training from the Law Enforcement side as well as the “company side”. I’m able to go from the classroom to the office and apply his training right away. I’m so grateful I found this training. It’s really helped me understand what is needed to help my company succeed and be DOT Compliant.

I have been driving a truck in the oilfield for 20 + years. I thought that I knew most of the driving regulations in trucking. I was wrong! This 3 day class was the best thing that has happened for me. I am glad that I was able to take it in Midland. I learned so much in the three days, so much knowledge that I want to move forward with the other classes that he has to ensure proper compliance and training of employees under me.

Thank you sir,

Wow. What can I say. After taking this course I can truly say I am a much better and knowledgeable employee for my company. I found out real quick that I was not at the level I thought I was. Santiago’s method of teaching and tools he gives you, make it so much easier to understand the rules and regulations of DOT. There’s no other course out there better to help cover and understand this topic. Thanks again Santiago for putting this presentation together to help better my career and position in an industry where safety is not really explained and enforced.

Santiago is very educated in DOT as he has worked in both side in the DOT world. He was very detailed in every chapter we touched. He was a very good instructor and highly recommend him!!

Extremely impressed!! The curriculum was very thorough and supportive of all learning types visual, verbal,& hands on. His delivery of explanation, examples and followup conversation unraveled the many misconceptions of DOT interpretation and actually taught DOT regulations without opinion or false information. In addition to the curriculum Santiago goes beyond classroom training to ensure post assistance offering many options such as video, phone call, and even subscription to an advanced means of references discussed during training for refreshment. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field and his background experience support his teaching method and information provided. I will definitely be continuing my educational options with this same instructor in other courses in the future. I recommend for many who don’t have an avenue to learn more about DOT compliance to take this course instructed by Santiago.

Santiago was very informative and knowledgeable on subject matter but most of all presented the class in a manner that wasn’t dry and kept everyone engaged. Was most impressed with the quality of handouts that we were giving to us for our benefit and can tell he is constantly trying to improve his course and the amount of information that is available to us because it most definitely is a lot of information to try to absorb in 3 days. He has other courses available and I will personally try to attend everything I can. Would recommend to anyone trying to move into this area.

We have had our authority for a month. Couldn’t find what we needed to put in our drivers file. When I found the training webinar I had no idea every thing I was going to learn. I enjoyed the way he explained everything where I could understand it. Gave the area you could find it in the FMCSA handbook and explained what it meant he always willing to take questions and answers so you can understand. I would definitely recommend this webinar to people that just got their authority. So much to know.

Heather Baumgartner

For me the course was a new experience, I was totally unaware of how the DOT works, my job is to follow up on accidents in the United States and I realized how important it is to know the DOT Regulations to be able to carry out a legal process in a way that can be managed and not be huge losses of money for the company.

I am very grateful for the course given and look forward to new courses!


Capacitación del Gerente de Cumplimiento DOT

I have looked for months for a thorough DOT Compliance Course to stack into my EHS training and was lucky enough to come across what Santiago is doing. Well worth the price of admission and then some. Course was very helpful for understanding the minimum requirements of DOT fleet management for both inter and intrastate commerce. Cannot recommend these courses enough for anyone starting a trucking company or trying to establish a foundational knowledge of DOT Compliance. The guidance and training materials supplied throughout the course will be invaluable to furthering my understanding in the subject matter. Would recommend training with Santiago to all companies that operate DOT regulated vehicles.

To All,

The class is very informative and in depth with a lot of information. There is a great class atmosphere, information, and experiences are shared by all. You will receive everything you need from this course; from pens to references, Santiago gives you what you need.
He brings great experiences from his law enforcement side to him actually working in the business side. He is a well rounded professional. He even brings law enforcement agent to the class, and you get to question about what they look for in a DOT stop of vehicles. I will definitely will be attending the other courses he offers. Thank you.

I felt confident in the fact I would leave Mr. Santiago’s course with so much more knowledge then I had before. From the moment the introduction to the course was made I felt like I was at the right and only place there was for ME to be able to gain much more knowledge in DOT Compliance. The way the information was taught to my class would even perpetuate even greater questions I’d ask to my team before. All in all a 5/5 training, and a 10/10 instructor.

In my seventeen year career as a CMV driver, I have not heard anybody give this kind of training. When I signed up, I was not sure how it was going to be presented. However, I was surprised since the first hour I was there Mr. Santiago has a strong knowledge from his previous work as a Trooper of the DOT regulations and explain in vivid detail those regulations. I am very impress of his presentation, all the material he put together to hand you down and knowledge you get about those regulation and the ability he give you to understand how important this is when it becomes a accident with one of your trucks in the road. It’s worth this training, of Compliance Manager for DOT regulations every penny you invest. Every trucking company and their owners need to take this training for the safety of your drivers and the safety of other drivers on the road and for the safety of the overall bottom line of your company.

If you’re going to invest in yourself or your company, do it with this training. He just doesn’t tell you what the regulations are; he shows you where they are at and has several exercises for you to do to make sure you understand. He makes sure you get the topic before moving forward. Don’t think about the price because I honestly think this class is cheap for the knowledge he gives you!

Te provee aparte de formatos, ejemplos e incluso de que documentacion necesitas tener en tus archivos por chofer para cumplir con lo requerido por DOT. Fui parte de la primera clase en Español y estoy segura que ira mejorando cada vez. Santiago promueve mucho la participacion del grupo durante la clase y en general el ambiente que se maneja durante todo el entrenamiento es de amabilidad, respeto y con libertad de hacer todas las preguntas necesarias.

Why did YOU miss out on this training course??!

Last week I attended this DOT Compliance Manager Course in Corpus Christi. This course was very informative and the instructor, Santiago Talamantez, was great!! He knows his curriculum and is VERY knowledgeable of the materials that he presents. He didn’t sugarcoat anything. As he gave us the materials, he explained why and in detail.

He would put you on the seat answering questions and included some short small work assignments/quizzes in class to test your knowledge of the materials that he gave. Going into this training course, I was somewhat knowledgeable of a few things, but some other things that I was not. Now after taking this course, I have a better understanding of what is fact and what is needed to know working in this industry.

Mr. Talamantez, thank you for your time and effort giving me this knowledge and I can’t wait until the next course!

Now everyone reading this, if you are thinking about attending this course/class, you better do so! I highly recommend this course because it is well worth the cost and time to attend. If you own a trucking company or work in management, I highly encourage y’all to attend and get educated on DOT Compliance and the liabilities associated with operating as a motor carrier!

I had the opportunity to attend the DOT Compliance Managers Course in Corpus Christi, Texas on the week of May 11-14. This course was by far the best DOT course that I have attended. Mr. Talamantez is very knowledgeable and I’m glad that he shared his knowledge with the class. Going into the class on the first day I believed that my knowledge was pretty high, but as we went along through the course I realized that my knowledge was not what I that it was. Once again Thank You Mr. Talamantez. Can’t wait for the next course..
I highly recommend this class, well worth the cost to attend! I also encourage owners and managers to attend.

This was an awesome DOT training class. As someone that has attended a lot of training classes in the transportation industry over the last 40 years, this class was hands down the best. Santiago has so much knowledge in this field and is happy to share all of it with the class attendees. If your company operates any size CMV in Texas or other States, this class will definitely help you understand the rules you must comply with. I highly recommend this training !!!

This class is the best class I’ve attended. Instructor is professional and makes it interesting enough to where you’re paying attention and learning. He doesn’t hesitate to take your question and shows you in the book where your answer is. Best DOT class hands down. If you haven’t spent your stimulus or income tax check, spend it here.

Santiago is a great instructor, very organized, explained the material very well. I highly recommend this training for ANY transportation company. This training is great for someone starting off in the transportation industry, or even someone who is wanting to be up to date with DOT regulations/safety material.

Thank you!

This four day course was very thorough, detailed and organized for someone who has very little knowledge to seasoned veterans that are eager to learn. I really appreciate all the information, questions asked/answered and the references to be confident in protecting the public, company personnel and ultimately our company. Thank you Santiago!

Great course, highly recommended for anyone who is interested in learning about the regulations and safety. The lecture is extremely detailed and you can practice everything you learn at the end of the course inspecting a vehicle yourself.

Santiago takes the time to make sure you understand the rules and that you know how to navigate through the regulations for future reference. The training is very interactive and Santiago makes it super easy to understand the topics. He encourages you to ask questions and challenges you to learn more.

By the end of the training you are able to comprehend the complex rules and regulations that are required by DOT.

Highly recommend this course! I’ve been in the Transportation Industry for 14+ years and had some DOT compliance knowledge, but with this course I found out I had much more to learn. I  and did learn it in the 4 days we were in the course. Great instructor, he knows how to explain compliance rules and help you find answers to questions.

I strongly believe that all trucking companies should send their Safety or DOT Manager or anyone in the company dealing with the compliance to this course. This training will help anyone better understand not only HOW to comply with the regulations, but get a better understanding of WHY we need to comply.

We never stop learning and you we never know what we can do until we try!

Great class and very informative. Santiago always has a positive attitude and answers all questions and makes sure you understand everything he is teaching. Santiago doesn’t pretend to know it all even though he is very knowledgeable in all aspects of DOT and safety and he will show you how to find the answers your looking for in the books so you understand the actual laws. The classroom materials are detailed and help you follow along with his instruction. I highly recommend any course he has to offer; this was the best safety training I have ever attended. Looking forward to his next training in Laredo.

The training is rich and abundant in safety rules & regulations. It is defined and explained in a way that the trainee can be confident on where to go to and what to look for related to FMCSA regulations & minimum compliance. The class is very interactive, open to Q & A with honest clarifications and sound understanding of the regulations from Santiago Talamantez.

Two words: Awesome course!

Juan E Rodriguez

As a safety professional of 12 years, I have been through several DOT training courses and thought I knew almost everything that I needed to know, but never learned as much as I did when I went through Santiago’s DOT Course. Santiago was very knowledgeable and explained things so they were easy to understand. I would highly recommend his classes; it’s obvious he takes the time to fully understand the topics he is teaching.

The instructor, Santiago Talamantez was extremely knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information about DOT Regulations; what types of drivers licenses are needed for different vehicle combinations, Texas Intrastate Exemptions to the regulations, driver qualifications, and vehicle maintenance (and so much more)… He was answered every question anyone had in depth and kept us interested throughout the whole course. This course was exactly what I needed to further my knowledge in DOT Compliance. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that has questions or needs training in this field. I appreciate all of Santiago’s hard work and dedication he has put into this course and his willingness to share it… I’m looking forward to taking his 4 day course in February 2021.

Honestly, when I signed up for the DOT Compliance Seminar, I thought I knew everything and all I was gonna do was reinforce my knowledge about DOT. I was completely wrong! There’s a lot more information to this that we need to know and I couldn’t be any more satisfied with this course. Just how Santiago said “Everything you know before we start, make sure to put it in your pocket for now”. You can’t go wrong with this course and even better when it’s a person who has been in this industry for so long. I am looking forward to the four day course.

Thank You Santiago!

Prior to attending the DOT Compliance Course taught by Santiago I knew just the basics about it or so I thought. After the 1st day of the training I realized I didn’t really know anything about DOT. This course that Santiago has put together is by far the best DOT training I have ever attended. He is very thorough with the information as well as an engaging presenter who allows opportunities to ask lots of questions. This seminar by far has more than met my expectations and would HIGHLY recommend anyone wanting to expand their knowledge in this industry contact him for his upcoming seminar dates.

If it was not for the training I did with Santiago, my little girl would be gone! While at a family BBQ , my 1-year old daughter began choking and I had to perform CPR on her. Thank God for the training we did and remembering to keep calm like he tells you in the class, I can’t thank him enough. I would highly recommend everyone going to Santiago for any training needs.

Santiago Talamantez is one the most intelligent, hard working people I have had the pleasure of working with and is a great family man too. When we worked together as Troopers conducting DOT inspections, Santiago was able to comprehend and excel so quickly that our chain of command saw fit that he taught some of the harder courses to new inspectors and troopers.  A few of those courses included hazardous materials and cargo tank certification. Santiago is very professional and respected and is still often times called by some of our personnel for answers to questions they may have while out in the field. This shows the impact that his knowledge and character can also have on your company and your employees by using his services.

Mr. Talamantez’ demeanor exhibits a passion for improving not only compliance, but more importantly safety. His perspective as a former enforcement officer gave us a unique insight into how the DOT regulations, applicable to our company, are actually enforced. He proved to be knowledgeable and practical in his advice, and his approach was that of a coach rather than a regulator. Hire him in confidence. We will be doing so again.

Hiring Santiago Talamantez was one of the best choices B&L could have made. He manages our DOT compliance, as well as our OSHA compliance. We hold monthly, informative meetings for both CDL drivers and shop workers. Santiago is clear as day, breaking down what the actual LAW is and what standards have to be met. We pride ourselves in being SAFE, PROFESSIONAL, AND EFFICIENT. Our drivers and equipment are safer on the road, then they have been before. The one thing that I appreciate and adds tremendous value to what he does, is his availability. I have called both day and night when certain situations arise, and he provides guidance.
