10-Year Recertification Notice

Providers that have been certified and listed on the National Registry are required to be recertified no sooner than 9 years and no later than 10 years after the date of issuance of your Medical Examiner certification credential. Recertification requires that you again complete a qualified training program, such as ours, and again take and pass the NRCME certification examination. Once you again pass the NRCME certification examination the FMCSA will issue a new Medical Examiner certification credential - including a new National Registry number - which will again be valid for 10 years.
