DOT Training

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Nursing, a leader in distance accessible education, is now offering an online DOT Medical Examiner Certification Review Course. This course was developed by Dr. Karen Heaton, a Certified Medical Examiner who is nationally recognized for her research and work with truck drivers. 

Beginning May 2014, all medical certificates issued to interstate truck and bus drivers must come from Medical Examiners nationally certified to conduct DOT physical examinations. The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) program that requires Medical Examiners to complete a training course and successfully pass the Medical Examiner Certification Test.

UAB’s 13 module online training prepares Medical Examiners (physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and doctors of chiropractic) to perform DOT driver examinations and conforms to the mandatory FMCSA curriculum. Those who successfully complete this certification review course will be eligible to sit for the Medical Examiner Certification Test.This online training offers the convenience of 24/7 access and uses multiple formats of content delivery, including video streaming, post-tests at the completion of each module, a final overall post-test, and downloadable resource material. Participants have 90 days in which to complete the entire course. For a video introduction to the course, click here.

The cost of UAB’s online DOT Medical Examiner Certification Review Course is $495. Registrants will receive 12 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits or 12 contact hours of CNE approved by the ANCC.
