Graduates of CAAHEP-accredited Medical Assistant programs are eligible to sit for the Certified Medical Assistant - CMA (AAMA) exam. The CMA (AAMA) designation is a national credential awarded by the American Association of Medical Assistants (AAMA), indicating that the Medical Assistant meets certain standards of competence as determined by the AAMA. Although certification is not required to work in most states, employers prefer to hire certified Medical Assistants. In the State of New Jersey, Medical Assistants who hold the CMA (AAMA) credential are permitted to administer injections.
