The DOT is old as dirt, but it is full of tools you can marshal to win your clients’ cases if you know how. Knowing how to read the DOT and its companion publications can give you a real and immediate edge in your hearing preparation and in cross examining VEs. This program will teach you how to identify the relevant jobs before the hearing so you can be prepared for the VE’s Step 4 testimony. You will also learn how to quickly and easily identify weak points in identified Step 5 jobs at the hearing, through the DOT definitions, data in the Selected Characteristics of Occupations, SVP, Work Force Requirements, industry groups, and more. Also, you will learn how to use the information in the Work Fields, MPSMS, and Occupational Groupings to attack a VE’s transferability analysis.
