This course has been designed to meet the core curriculum for the medical examiner training in accordance with the National Registry for Certified Medical Examiners Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in an accelerated 4.5 hour class. This course will cover the eight core competency areas designated by NRCME, specifically designed for the family physician, NP’s and PA’s.

Upon successful completion of the course, Medical Examiner candidates should be prepared to sit for the FMCSA National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners certification examination.
With the release of the FMCSA’s final rule establishing the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME), all Medical Examiners who conduct physical examinations for interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers must be trained, tested, and certified to be on the FMCSA National Registry. By May 21, 2014, drivers may only obtain DOT physicals from examiners who are on the FMCSA National Registry.
To be eligible to sit for the FMCSA National Registry examination, Medical Examiners must obtain training from an organization that is CME accredited to provide health care professional training. The AAFP Chapters above are only offering the training course. Those taking the course will receive verification of training allowing you to register for the Federal exam. You must pay a separate fee and follow instructions for finding testing sites available on the FMCSA web site.
