2011The RMA is administered by the American Medical Technologists (AMP). According to their website, there are are no requirements for re-certification.
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.

    I have been an MA for over 20 years. Took the RMA and did not renew due to not currently working as an RMA. What is the process to retake the test?

    Question: Like the CNA certification, can one take the test without having had the course if they have applicable experience? Please let me know.
