FAA Aviation Medical Examiner Certification Not Required!
There is no requirement to become a FAA Aviation Medical Examiner to perform the BasicMed medical exam for Private pilots!
This 2 hour Online, On-Demand, BasicMed exam physician training course is appropriate for MDs, DOs, DCs, ANP/NPs, PAs, and other “state licensed physicians”. (See below eligible health care providers.)
