  • Commercial Driver Medical Examiner
    Online Training

    The ACOEM Commercial Driver Medical Examiner training program has been updated to meet the core curriculum requirements for medical examiner training, in accordance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).  Upon satisfactory completion of this program those eligible to serve as examiners would be prepared and able to sit for the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) certification examination.

    Led by Dr. Hartenbaum and her faculty for more than a decade, the highly successful Commercial Driver Medical Examiner (CDME) course has been expanded to include required details about the FMCSA, how to complete the medical form, and components of the physical examination. This is the first time this acclaimed program has been offered online. Learn more about ACOEM's training opportunities!
