All applicants are expected to complete and mail the applications with the application fees and all documentation to the AMT, and are kept informed of the progress of their application to make sure employers and references respond appropriately.

After the application and verification, written confirmation is sent from the AMT registrar, indicating approval with the authorization to test  letter AND all the details and exam schedule.

Certification Exam Format

2011The Registered Medical Assistant exam is administered by the American Medical Technologists (AMT). For questions like that in regard to the taking of the exam, best to speak with them. We do not administer the exam - we help students study for the RMA
The Registered Medical Assistant exam is administered by the American Medical Technologists (AMP). According to their website, the schools must be recognized by the U.S. Department of Education: Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and the Accreditation Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). There are currently about 700 Medical Assisting programs accredited by these two organizations.
I do not believe there is a time frame after graduation. Certification for RMA's is required by many employers, but is not mandatory. The actual exam is administered by the American Medical Technologist (AMP). Probably best to speak with them directly.
The RMA certification is not a mandatory certification. The government does not require that you be certified, BUT most employers DO require the certification.
The Application fee for the RMA Exam is $90.
