Certified Medical Examiners are required by the FMCSA to complete refresher training 5 years after initial certification. The FMCSA has advised that when the refresher training is available certified Medical Examiners will be notified by e-mail (so it is important to make sure the certified Medical Examiner has a correct e-mail listing with the FMCSA). The training will cover mostly updates and new information and is not intended to cover previously reviewed material. Certified Medical Examiners will be given adequate notice and time to complete the refresher training.
For more information, Medical Examiners can contact the DOT/FMCSA directly at FMCTECHSUP@dot.gov (recommended) or by telephone at 617-494-3003.
As of January 2022, the 5-year refresher training has not been made available by the DOT. Certified Medical Examiners will be notified by email when the refresher training is available.
