Expires: 02/28/2023 (subject to change)
- CE for this activity will not be available after this date.
AANP’s CMV Medical examiner (ME) training course is designed to ensure healthcare providers – NPs/APRNs, PAs, MDs, DOs, and DCs, are educated on the core curriculum established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in preparation to sit for the NRCME Certification test. The course is completed entirely online and is divided into 13 subject modules. The entire course takes the typical participant approximately 13 hours to complete. Upon completion the medical examiner will receive a certificate qualifying them to sit for the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) Exam.
Our course also includes step-by-step guidance, forms, FAQs, and a study guide for in-depth review and preparation for the NRCME certification test.
The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) was developed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to improve highway safety and driver health by requiring that medical examiners be trained and certified to effectively determine whether a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) driver meets FMCSA’s physical qualification standards. The goal of the National Registry program is to promote and preserve the highest level of professional standards of training and care among medical examiners. To further that goal, the National Registry program requires that medical examiners performing CMV driver examinations be trained and certified.
This ME training course conforms to FMCSA’s training curriculum modules and topics on regulations and guidelines for conducting CMV driver medical examinations. FMCSA regulations and guidelines are reviewed regularly, and the training is updated as required. This course was last updated August 5, 2021.

- Discuss the role of the Medical Examiner.
