Hello everyone, I have a quick question. I am currently going to school for Medical Assisting, but the school is not accredited by ABHES or CAAHEP. I definitely need to go to school, and I need all the information I can get about what I should do... I know I'll need to network like crazy, which isn't a problem, but what about certification? Any information will be appreciated!

You won't be able to become a Certified Medical Assistant without attending an accredited program. Most employers also want prospective employees to have attended an accredited program. I'm not sure how a "Registered Medical Assistant" works, maybe someone else has some input, or knowledge, on that. Goodluck!

Dont waste time with the class if its not ABHES or CAAHEP recognized, online schools with those titles still have a shot at the CMA (if done correctly) if your RMA venture...goes Tachy...(Zing!)

Besides why waste money getting something that employers will scratch their head at?
