Registration Requirements for NMCA’s Certification Workshops

Federal Law does not require Healthcare Professionals that meet certain professional standards to attend lengthy traditional programs in order to obtain certification. These workshops do not require approval under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005.

National Medical Certification Association for Health Care Professionals is a professional organization that specializes in “Certification Workshops” and Continuing Education Activities. We provide CE Hours and skill enhancement services only. * NOT ENTRY LEVEL EDUCATION SERVICES. “Continuing Education Providers “Provider approved by the Board of Registered Nursing” License Provider Number CEP16551 Valid through 10/31/2022

If you are looking for an entry-level program. Most trade schools and community colleges in your area offer lengthy programs that usually include externships and clinical rotations. NMCA’s Continuing Education Certification Workshops are not for entry-level private pay students entering into the medical field. They are only designed for qualified medical professionals.

Our certification workshops are designed to help only qualified healthcare professionals who are at least 18 years of age with a high school diploma, GED, or have the equivalent from a foreign country, and with prior experience in the medical field through their job, the military, or schooling to enhance your skills from previous training, keep you abreast with industry standards, provide the mandatory continuing education units required to keep your certification current and to become certified in the field.

Why do we offer this program

Why pay thousands of dollars for college or technical school in tough economic times like these for skills you already have? College is not required for phlebotomy certification. Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) and many other allied healthcare positions offer a professional status and do not require College or Technical school.

(NMCA’s) accelerated hands-on continuing education & certification workshops were developed for (qualified healthcare professionals) that don’t have thousands of dollars to spend going back to school in tough economic times like these for skills they already have when they really only need a refresher, continuing education or certification.

Most Healthcare professionals have experience, but lack documentation. Our certification workshops are designed to give the healthcare professional a refresher course or continuing medical education hands-on class that includes certification, because most employers prefer to hire healthcare professionals with valid certification.
