The DMERT group


The DMERT Group (DME Repair Technician Group) is a non-profit organization made up of stakeholders from across the DME/HME industry, including manufacturers, vendors, OTs, PTs, trainers, and technicians. 

FIOS is an active participating member of the organization and supports the industry-wide standardization of skills and knowledge for repair technicians. 

The aim of the organization is to establish guidelines of best practice for DME Repair Technicians, and to approve evaluation and program pathways to credentialing.

FIOS DME Repair Training develops all our courses in line with the guidelines of best practice set forth by The DMERT Group.

DMERT group credentialing challenge exams

In line with the DMERT Group credentialing initiative rolling out soon, FIOS will offer testing services for certification of currently-employed DME technicians.
According to the credentialing guidelines, some technicians currently working may have the skills and knowledge sufficient to be qualified as a basic Level 1 DMERT technician. Although a few individual training courses offered may appeal as training practice and revision, the majority of training could prove unnecessary for some working techs.
To this end, a challenge exam has been developed by FIOS and approved by The DMERT Group.
This challenge exam will allow technicians already working in the industry for a certain length of time, and with adequate previous training and learning qualifications, to take the two hour online qualifying test, and the follow-up hands-on half day skills exam. 
The launch date of the these tests will be determined by The DMERT Group, and facilitated by FIOS.
Once the dates are announced, FIOS will publish all relevant registration and access information here.
