Certification & Recertification REQUIREMENTS

The CMA (AAMA) is considered the gold standard of medical assisting professionalism. The credential represents a medical assistant who has been certified by the Certifying Board of the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA). The CMA (AAMA) means a professional edge, increased prestige among colleagues, and greater job security.

The National Board of Examiners -- responsible for many national examinations for physicians—serves as test consultant for the exam. As a result, the reliability, validity, and security of the exam are of the highest order.

A greater number of employers are preferring (or even insisting) that their medical assistants be CMAs (AAMA). The AAMA staff receives 100 or more requests per day to verify that current or potential medical assistant employees are CMAs (AAMA).
