  • About The National Academy of DOT Medical Examiners

    The National Academy of DOT Medical Examiners (also known as NADME) was founded in 2005 by Occupational-Medical Physicians and transportation industry experts with the goal of providing the most effective and highest quality training courses to over 10,000 DOT medical examiners. NADME students appreciate the flexibility and efficiency of our online training platform which allows them to not only learn at their pace but also retain the critical information required to sit for the NRCME national certification exam.

    Our Ongoing Commitment to Accredited DOT NCRME Training

    To ensure progress in our ongoing commitment to DOT NCRME Training and working closely together, our medical advisory board and talented course development team combines over 250 years of experience in education, adult e-learning and compliance training to produce our online medical examiner training programs compliant with the DOT NRCME medical examiner certification training requirements. NADME has demonstrated its ability to enhance the skills and knowledge of medical examiners in the DOT NRCME requirements and regulations evidenced by our students’ 99.9 % pass rate on the NRCME national certification exam.

    Our medical advisory board provides medical expertise, content, and oversight in the development of DOT NRCME medical examiner training and education programs. It’s comprised of our Board of Directors and representatives from the medical community with relevant skills, knowledge, and experience in medical disciplines that can affect the physical qualifications and health of truck and motor coach drivers.

  • INDUSTRY ADVISORY BOARD

    The purpose of our industry advisory committee is to facilitate dialogue and gain the practical insights and experiences of representatives from the trucking, motor coach, and insurance industries regarding issues relating to and affecting DOT NRCME driver physical examinations and health. Among the goals of the committee are identifying ways to ensure that a qualified and adequate number of medical examiners will be available throughout the country.
