Program:


Once you have completed a program from a Mississippi medical assistant school, candidates must apply for, take, and pass the CMA Certification Examination offered by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA). Application for taking this exam requires completion of a form, submission of proper documentation, and payment of a fee ($125 or $250 depending on qualifications). The exam is offered year-round, but to take the exam in a preferred time period, candidates must apply by the appropriate deadline, no later than four months prior to the desired test date. Some local chapters of the AAMA offer review courses for this exam. Membership in the AAMA is encouraged as it is a good networking and informational resource.

When the application form is completed, applicants will receive permission to schedule an appointment to take the exam. There is a three hour time limit to take the exam; all questions will be answered on a computer. Unofficial results are available immediately upon completion. The official results will be sent several weeks after the exam. Once a candidate passes the exam, a certificate of their credentials will be issued.

Through campus based and online programs, aspiring Medical Assistants in Jackson, West Gulfport, Gulfport, Biloxi and Hattiesburg, Mississippi may be able to prepare themselves for the possibility of employment in some of the largest hospitals and healthcare facilities in the state including the Tupelo Hospital, North Mississippi Medical Center, Baptist Memorial Hospital and University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Recertification is required every five years, either by enrolling in continuing education courses or by taking the recertification exam.
