On-Demand: Mastering Masking


On-Demand Course: Mastering Masking
120-minute presentation | CLE: 2 Credit Hours
Cost: Free 

Federal and most state law prohibits the “Masking” of convictions. Misconceptions continue to persist surrounding this statute’s mandate requiring the reporting of CDL/CMV violations and convictions and prosecutors’ discretion to negotiate these cases.

This online training course, developed by national experts in cooperation with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the National District Attorneys Association’s National Traffic Law Center, and the National Center for State Courts, is for new and practicing prosecutors, as well as other traffic safety professionals who desire to learn more about the legal and ethical consequences of plea negotiations involving commercial driver’s license (CDL) cases. This FREE training course is designed to equip prosecutors with the knowledge, information, and confidence necessary to effectively prosecute CDL and/or large commercial motor vehicle (CMV) cases. The course walks the learner through a first-person simulation of prosecuting the fictional traffic case of a CDL holder. The training uses a case file, interactive exercises, document mock-ups, and avatar voiceovers to bring the course content to life.

Completion of all slides of the content module along with successfully passing a knowledge assessment quiz earns the learner a certificate of completion. This training is self-paced, allowing the learner to move at their own pace to complete the content module in one sitting or via multiple sessions. Estimated time for course completion: approx. 1.5 – 2 hours.

Mastering Masking
Begin self-paced component package.
Begin self-paced component package. Federal and most state law prohibits the “masking” of convictions. Misconceptions continue to persist surrounding this statute’s mandate requiring the reporting of CDL/CMV violations and convictions and prosecutors’ discretion to negotiate these cases. Learners will appreciate how the enforcement of this and other regulations combine to reduce injury and death by keeping unsafe commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders off the roads and assuring that each driver has one driver’s license and one complete driver’s record. Participants will be able to: • Understand the Federal definition of “Masking,” “Conviction” and “Disqualification” pursuant to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations • Learn about the ethical consequences of Masking Estimated time for course completion: approx. 1.5 hours
