Event Details

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration  (FMCSA) has established a National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners with requirements that all medical examiners who conduct physical examinations for interstate commercial motor vehicle drivers must complete a training course and pass a certification examination prior to May 21, 2014. We are pleased to offer our members and other primary care professionals this course.  The CAFP Medical Examiners Department of Transportation training program is delivered completely online.  You may log in and out as time permits and finish at your own pace.


Participation in this course does not guarantee successful passage of the certification exam. This is an advanced level fast-paced online course for physicians, which assumes a prior mastery and skillset in the basics of history and physical examination techniques. In addition, this course includes extensive resources materials that the learner will need to review and study prior to taking the certification exam.
