Q- Why is CCBMA discontinuing the CCMA credentials?
A- The CACMA credential was developed after a Job Task Analysis was performed indicating that our other credentials (CCMA-AC, CCMA-C, CCMA-A) need to be updated to reflect the knowledge, skills and abilities that today’s medical assistants need to be successful in the workplace. CCBMA will be seeking NCCA accreditation for the CACMA exam.
