The DOT/FMCSA has changed the registration process for medical providers preparing to become certified Medical Examiners in the NRCME program.
Providers now have the option to upload their training certificate of completion to their DOT account before they sit for the national exam. Some providers have been receiving email notifications from the FMCSA requiring them to upload their training certificate of completion to complete their registration process, even after they have sat for and passed the national exam. Some providers have been experiencing delays in becoming certified due to this requirement and claim that they did not receive an email notification from the FMCSA regarding this matter. Providers can contact the DOT directly at FMCTECHSUP@dot.gov (recommended) or by telephone at (617) 494-3003 with any questions regarding their pending certification.

To avoid certification delays, we recommend that all medical providers upload their training certificate of completion to their DOT account as soon as they complete their training program.
If you receive an email directing you to upload your training certificate of completion, upload your certificate to your DOT account as soon as possible and then email the DOT at FMCTECHSUP@dot.gov to notify them that you have uploaded your certificate.
