Welcome to The NRCME Training Institute
The Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry was developed to improve highway safety and driver health by requiring that medical examiners be trained and certified to determine effectively whether a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver’s health meets the FMCSA standards. This supports the FMCSA’s goal to improve safety and reduce fatalities on our Nation’s highways. The NRCME Training Institute program will educate medical examiners about the FMCSA medical standards for CMV drivers, and enhance their understanding of the mental and physical demands of operating a CMV to help determine if a driver can safely handle these demands.
Our accredited DOT certification training program for eligible medical providers exceeds the core curriculum requirements established by the FMCSA. Upon completion of our program, participants will automatically be issued a personalized and dated Certificate of Completion, which is the document required to apply for an account with the DOT and to sit in person for the $79 Medical Examiner national exam to be certified to perform Commercial Driver License (CDL) examinations on CMV drivers for 10-years.
