My MA school isn't CAAHEP accredited, but they make us think we can take the test?

I've been going to Anthem Institute in Springfield, PA, I will be done in another month. Problem is that they aren't CAAHEP or ABHES (?) accredited either. They keep telling us that we can take the test for a CMA, but if they aren't an accredited program, how is that even possible for us to take it? Also they haven't even found an extern site for me yet and I only have another 4 weeks to go. Did anyone else encounter a program that wasn't accredited and what did you do? I read the eligiblilty requirements for the test and I'm not eligible because of my program not being accredited. I dont know what to do!

yes you have to be careful about those school not accredited by CAAHEP or ABHES because u are just wasting your money.they are a lot of school offering the medical assitant program but they are not accredited, u can go to CAAHEP or ABHES website to find it out if they are accredited. Its always updated. U can get a job even u are not certified but mostly employer hired certified or registered MA and from accredited school, And they pay u more and get promoted.. lot of oppurtunities if you go to school with CAAHEP or ABHES accredited. Hope it helps you.
