1 AMT Certification Requirements

2 Why Certify? Certification is a way to assess whether an individual possesses the skills and knowledge required for successful job performance. By becoming certified, and maintaining competency year after year, the individual indicates to an employer that he/she: Has met standards that have been established and verified by a third-party organization Is dedicated to maintaining quality in the workplace What s in a Name? Although some of AMT s credentials bear the designation Registered, it is important to note that ALL individuals credentialed by AMT are considered Certified, much like Registered Nurses, Registered Dieticians and Registered Respiratory Therapists are certified by their respective boards. The new Federal CMS Meaningful Use regulations require that Medical Assistants who enter orders in the Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) system be credentialed. MA students will need to be certified in order to meet this changing job requirement.

3 Why AMT? AMT is Well-Respected in the Industry Established in 1939, AMT is a PREMIER certification agency with a well-established national and international reputation. AMT Validates Credentials AMT carefully reviews applicants credentials to ensure that they are appropriately trained in an accredited institution and/or have the requisite experience necessary to successfully take and pass an AMT exam. Low hurdles to qualifying for a certification exam is typically not well received by employers, can damage a school s reputation, and be a disservice to students. AMT Promotes High Exam Security AMT devotes considerable resources to ensure secure exam administration and procedural standardization. All of its exams are conducted in tightly controlled testing environments. To maintain this integrity, AMT does not allow instructors or other third-party individuals to proctor and/or have any financial interest in administering exams. AMT Supports its Certificants To promote continued learning and growth, AMT s certified individuals automatically become members of AMT and have at their disposal a variety of tools and services, including multiple continuing educational options and leadership opportunities. AMT is a Cost-Effective Choice When reviewing the total cost of certification compliance over several years, AMT stands out as the best and most economical professional choice. AMT also provides a number of cost-effective continuing education options, and yet does not designate how or from whom it is obtained.
