The need for trained medical review officers (MROs) to evaluate drug and alcohol test results is enormous, and it is estimated that more than 20 million Americans are covered by programs requiring testing. Physicians in many specialties conduct drug and alcohol tests for business, industry, government agencies, and schools. The Drug-Free Workplace Act affects all federal agencies, and mandatory alcohol and drug testing is now required of all intrastate truckers, commercial driver’s license holders, pilots, and other transportation workers.
ACOEM’s MRO Online course is a 24/7 on-demand course that consists of 30 recorded modules, 90 self-assessment questions, a syllabus, syllabus supplement and a resource guide. Taking the course qualifies you to sit for the MRO certification exam required by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and many private companies doing drug and alcohol testing (e.g., more than 60 percent of large private employers require drug and alcohol testing). Additionally, in joint government agreements, the United States, Canada, and Mexico also monitor truckers crossing international borders.
More than 16,000 physicians have completed ACOEM’s highly acclaimed training and ACOEM has been the educational provider of choice for MROs since 1990.
