NRCME Certification FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Yes!  This course is approved for BOTH first time certifications and the 10-year recertification requirement.

Yes!  This course is approved for BOTH first time certifications and the 10-year recertification requirement.

  • The 10-year recertification training is essentially the same as first time certification.
  • Begin by completing either LIVE and ONLINE training through Pass My Physical
  • Then log on to your NRCME account and upload your training certificate.
  • Contact an approved testing organization (Prometric or PSI) and schedule your exam.
  • Take and pass the recertification exam before the last day in the year that your current certification expires.

You are eligible once you reach 9 years since your initial certification. The recertification training and testing begins on January 1, 2023 and examiners will have a year to complete the process. Get started early though!

All Medical Examiners currently certified and listed on the National Registry may continue to perform DOT Physicals until their initial certification expires (the last day of the year you were certified, or December 31 of that year).  Therefore, you can fail the recertification exam and continue to perform exams until that date.  Furthermore, unlike your initial certification testing where you must wait 30 days to retake the exam, medical examiners who are attempting to recertify no longer must wait the 30 days and can register to take the test again even on the next day!

This is available in your National Registry account, in your profile, and under the certification expiration line item.
