Get Certified: How to Obtain Medical Assistant Certification
Right after you graduate, you’ll want to go ahead and obtain certification. There are many reasons why. First, you’ll be able to show future employers that you know your stuff. Second, it will help you stand out from the rest of the applicants going after that dream job.
Some employers may not require the certification for employment. Yet, it’s still a great certification to add to your resumé. Students who graduate from Cambridge are eligible to sit for the RMA, CMA and NCCT national registry certification exams. Plus, if you want to take your career to the next level, you can also become certified in Phlebotomy and EKG.
How do you obtain certification? First, you’ll need to apply for each certification exam. Depending on which ones you take, there may be an entry fee you must pay. Once you take the exam, you’ll receive your results. If you pass, you’ll receive your certification and will be eligible for employment.
Tips for Finding the Perfect New Job After Graduation
After you obtain certification, you’ll be ready to find the perfect new job. Here are a few tips:
- Determine where you’d like to work: Take some time to think about where you’d like to work. For example, do you want to work in a hospital? A clinic? Maybe you want to work with children in pediatrics. Medical assistants have many options.
