Initial vs Recertification Training

Before the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) established guidelines for the recertification process, there was only one National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) training program available. When the Department of Transportation (DOT) announced the recertification requirements in May 2022, many providers reached out to us, inquiring about a recertification training program.

A common misconception was that the recertification training would differ from the initial NRCME training. However, there is no difference between the two. Both our initial and recertification training programs cover the same comprehensive content. To prevent any confusion, we market these programs separately, ensuring that providers understand that the training content remains consistent, whether for initial certification or recertification.

Enroll in our comprehensive NRCME training program today and secure your certification for the next 10 years.

10-Year Recertification Notice

Certified Medical Examiners on the National Registry are required to be recertified no sooner than 9 years and no later than 10 years from the date of issuance of their medical examiner certification credential. Recertification requires that providers complete an accredited training program such as ours and pass the in-person national NRCME certification examination.
