With Oakstone’s NRCME Plus Examiner Training System,™ you’ll gain access to all the resources you need to confidently prep for and pass the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) medical examiner certification exam.
Leading the Pack
Ranked easiest-to-use among NRCME study courses, NRCME Plus is the only program of its kind backed by 45+ years of experience developing multimedia continuing education products for clinicians and healthcare providers at any level.
An impressive 95% of past NRCME Plus users passed their certification test on the first attempt. That’s because it’s designed by experts to identify the critical skills, abilities, and knowledge needed to successfully pass the exam and — more importantly — to effectively perform CMV driver physical exams.
NRCME Plus is the most up-to-date and effective system available, thanks to ongoing development and content review.
The new edition of NRCME Plus meets FMSCA core education requirements for DOT examiners and offers:
Our training system meets or exceeds FMCSA 8 curriculum topics regarding regulations and guidelines for conducting CMV driver medical examinations. FMCSA regulations and guidelines are reviewed regularly and our training system is updated accordingly.
NRCME Plus training can be completed in about 12 hours, and you'll have the opportunity to earn up to 12.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
You'll start with a Pre-Test to assess your base knowledge, then work your way through 28 modules covering:
• Introduction to Training
• Background & Structure
• FMCSA Definitions & Regulations
• The CMV Driver & Public Safety
• Diabetes Mellitus
• Neurological Introduction
• Progressive Neurological Disorders
• Episodic Neurological Disordes
• Cardiovascular Disease Introduction
• Coronary Heart Disease
• Congenital Heart Disease
• Valvular Heart Disease
• Heart Transplant
• Vascular Disease
• Non-CHD Cardivascular Diseases
• Pulmonary Conditions
• Mental Health
• Substance Abuse
• Other Diseases & Disorders
• Medication Rules
• Driver Medications
• CMV Physical Examination
• Case Studies
Quiz yourself following each module, then — once you've completed all modules, quizzes, and the Post-Test, you'll be awarded a certificate authorizing you to sit for the FMCSA examination.
For additional FMCSA exam prep, you can explore our case studies of typical and atypical driver presentations, including a thorough review of all proper application of standards and recommendations, and test your knowledge with 500+ practice questions in our Q&A Decks.
You can also take advantage of the Online Resource Library: Expert panel and guidelines, FMCSA forms, waiver packets, and sample templates for your practice.
HCPs who establish themselves early may gain a competitive edge. HCPs who are among the first to become a certified medical examiner have the opportunity to command more business. Experience practice growth and expand patient bases ahead of others that will be offering this vital public service.
