The American Medical Certification Association (AMCA) creates and distributes certification exams to the allied healthcare industry through approved schools and organizations. The purpose of our National Certification Exams are to verify that each successful exam candidate has proven that they are knowledgeable in their specific subject matter. Certification by definition means, "to attest as being true or as represented as meeting a standard." It is through a set of standards that the American Medical Certification Association has developed each of its exams. Each certification exam is developed by a team of Subject Matter Experts who have years of experience in their chosen field. The exams are based on 5 subject areas: Medical Terminology, Medical Law and Ethics, OSHA and Infection Control, Anatomy and Physiology and the subject matter related to that specific area i.e., phlebotomy, EKG or MAA.
