The AAMA Releases New Assessment-Based Certificate in Education Program

Medical assisting educators help shape the next generation of medical assistants. And to provide quality education for their students, educators must be prepared with an understanding of learning fundamentals, knowledge of best practices and methods, and the ability to teach a diverse population.
To help anyone interested in allied health education or medical assisting education acquire and demonstrate that knowledge, the American Association of Medical Assistants® (AAMA) has launched the Assessment-Based Certificate in Education (ABC-E) Program. Whether the learner is exploring an interest in medical assisting or allied health education, beginning a career in teaching, or looking for new professional development opportunities to improve as a longtime educator, completing the ABC-E Program is the right choice!
To earn the certificate, individuals must complete the following three courses and pass a final assessment:
The ABC-E courses are available to CMAs (AAMA)®, medical assistants, and all other health care professionals. The courses can be taken together as part of the ABC-E Program or individually for AAMA continuing education unit (CEU) credit. Altogether, the program is worth 27 general CEUs.
