Also, As a DOT Certified Medical Examiner, your NRCME certification is valid for 10 years. In order to maintain your ability to perform DOT exams, you are required to complete an accredited training course and pass the NRCME certification exam before your certification lapses. You can complete the recertification starting at 9 years following your initial certification. Examiners who were certified in 2013 can now pursue recertification.
The 5 year periodic training is provided by FMCSA only and examiners will be sent an invitation and link once they are eligible. The 10 year refresher training and testing is similar to the original training and testing and is provided by organizations that are accredited by FMCSA. Medical examiners can upload proof of completion of the 10-year training to their National Registry accounts and be eligible to take the 10-year recertification test starting January 1, 2023.
