Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) Training
Please read the following information before selecting a training course
- Prospective AMEs are required to complete the Medical Certification Standards and Procedures Training (MCSPT) and the Clinical Aerospace Physiology Review for AMEs (CAPAME) prior to attending a Basic AME Seminar.
- AMEs may complete the Multimedia Aviation Medical Examiner Refresher Course (MAMERC) course to fulfill mandatory refresher training requirements if you have attended an AME seminar within the last three years. Since AME refresher training is required every 36 months, MAMERC can be used to extend attendance of an AME seminar by 36 months. Attendance at an AME seminar is required every six years (72 months), regardless of when MAMERC was last completed.
- Completion of the CAPAME course is not acceptable as a substitute for AME seminar training.
- You may complete MAMERC or CAPAME at any time for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit, since CME and AME refresher training are separate matters.
