NATIONAL MEDICAL CERTIFICATION ASSOCIATION PREPARES YOU FOR CERTIFICATION
We prepare you every step of the way. You’ll learn the content you need to pass certification exams and get continuing education hours for the class the exams represent.
We have a complete process dedicated to your success
After taking one of our continuing education home study classes to learn the content of a specific subject, you will participate in a one-day live hands-on class to practice and review skills, then you take the corresponding certification exam. When you pass the exam, you earn the continuing education hours and national certification for that class – just as you would if you had attended the class for an entire program and paid full tuition for it.
STEP ONE: EVALUATION
Veterans with military healthcare Training can participate in NMCA’s continuing education and certification workshops and challenge the exams.
