2024 ME Handbook

2024 ME Handbook

In the world of the NRCME these are exciting times! The FMCSA has just released the 2024 Medical Examiner Handbook, in January, not in DRAFT form, and explicitly described as the current resource for advisory guidance to be used by MEs.

There are some substantive changes in the 2024 version that will impact the content of this training program. We strongly encourage you to listen to the introductory FMCSA video (less than 12 minutes and available below). Even more strongly we recommend that every ME become familiar with the 2024 Handbook (PDF link available below).

As all accredited NRCME training programs on the market should be doing, we will be making ongoing changes over the next few weeks to make sure that every aspect of our program will reflect the current FMCSA guidance.

Issued Date: Monday, January 22, 2024

The January 2024 edition of the Medical Examiner’s Handbook replaces all previous handbook editions. Medical examiners should not rely on previously published editions of the handbook, including any drafts available on FMCSA’s Medical Review Board website, as a source of Agency guidance. In addition, section of the handbook relating to obstructive sleep apnea rescinds and replaces the January 2015 FMCSA Bulletin to Medical Examiners and Training Organizations Regarding Obstructive Sleep Apnea (FMCSA-MED-Sleep Apnea-FAQ001).
