The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) is a Federal program that establishes requirements for healthcare professionals that perform physical qualification examinations for truck and bus drivers. To become a DOT certified medical examiners (ME) and listed on the National Registry, healthcare professionals must complete training and testing on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) physical qualification standards and guidelines. The National Registry website is accessible to carriers, drivers, enforcement officials, and the general public.
All healthcare professionals whose scope of practice authorizes them to perform DOT physical examinations, as defined by the state in which they practice, and who intend to perform DOT physical examinations and issue medical certificates for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to meet the requirements of Section 391.41 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) must be certified and listed on FMCSA’s National Registry.
The NADME DOT NRCME Certification training course will train medical examiners who need to obtain certification in order to continue issuing medical certificates for truck and bus drivers. After completing our program and passing the NRCME Certification Exam, you will receive your FMCSA DOT NRCME Medical Examiners Certificate.
Medical examiners that currently perform or wish to perform DOT physical examinations for interstate CMV drivers must complete training about FMCSA’s physical qualifications regulations and advisory criteria, and pass a certification test to be listed on the National Registry.
