Concentra® performs more than 900,000 Department of Transportation (DOT) exams per year and our clinicians are national experts in DOT and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations. To train our medical examiners and help them earn National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) certification, we produce a NRCME training course. This in-depth training course, created by Concentra experts, is open to all clinicians, including those not affiliated with Concentra.
Our curriculum is built on clinical knowledge and designed for use beyond the certification exam. The training course prepares you to pass the NRCME certification exam and is comparable to other programs while being less expensive and time-consuming. Topics include:
The online-only course contains 13 training modules, a reference manual, and sample exam. The course work qualifies for 12 hours of continuing medical education credit through Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). You can complete each module at your own pace.
The course was developed by Concentra’s national CME experts and meets all FMCSA requirements.
READY FOR TESTING AND CERTIFICATION
After completing the course, you’ll be well-versed on the FMCSA’s driver physical qualification standards and will be prepared to take the NRCME certification exam. Examiners who take the course have a 99% NRCME exam pass rate.
Who is Eligible for the Course?
All medical examiners who conduct DOT physical examinations for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers are required to complete training on the FMCSA’s physical qualification standards and must be listed on the NRCME.
Certified medical examiners must complete FMCSA-sponsored periodic training every five years to refresh their knowledge and stay updated on any changes to the FMCSA guidelines. They are required to complete recertification training and testing every ten years.
