Building a Community for People with Disability

To become a medical assistant, you need to complete a training program that covers both administrative and clinical skills. The training program can be offered by a vocational school, a university, a junior college, or an online platform. The duration of the program can range from 10 months to 2 years, depending on the level of education and certification you want to achieve. The training program should be accredited by a recognized organization, such as the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) or the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). This will ensure that you receive quality education and prepare you for the certification exam.

The certification exam is offered by various national organizations, such as the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA), the National Healthcareer Association (NHA), the American Medical Technologists (AMT), and the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT). Passing the exam will demonstrate your competence and professionalism as a medical assistant and increase your chances of finding a job in the field. I hope this information helps you understand the training process for becoming a medical assistant. If you are interested in pursuing this career, you can check out some of the online medical assistant certification courses that are available, such as ACT, CCNY, or CareerStep. These courses are self-paced, affordable, and include the certification exam and optional clinical externship. Good luck! 😊 #AWU #disability #jobs
