Scheduling Your Recertification Exam

To schedule your NRCME 10-year recertification exam, you will need to upload your new training Certificate of Completion to the DOT first. To report completion of your 10-year periodic training to the National Registry, log into your DOT National Registry account, access your user profile from the left side navigation menu by selecting “My Profile,” then select “Manage User Information.” Under “Training Details,” scroll down to the subsection titled “10-year Periodic Training Organization Details” and select Edit. Complete the data entry and document upload requirement (you must upload your new training Certificate of Completion) and select Save.

After 24 hours, you will be eligible to schedule the $79 certification exam with either a PSI or Prometric testing company using the 10-digit National Registry certification number issued to you by the DOT. To locate testing centers near you, visit Google Maps and search for “PSI Testing” or “Prometric Testing”. Most testing centers are open six days a week.

For assistance regarding recertification, contact the DOT at FMCTECHSUP@dot.gov or by telephone at (617) 494-3003.
