How does a Medical Assistant become certified?

After completing a Medical Assistant Program at an accredited institution, such as North-West College, an individual can sign up to take the Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) exam, which is offered in January, June, and October of each year. Once the individual passes the exam, he or she is considered a Certified Medical Assistant.
