The Medical Assistant Certification Review course prepares Medical Assistants to take The National Certified Medical Assistant (NCMA) Test through the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT). Unlike most current certification review courses that focus on self-study with a study guide, this course meets face-to-face and provides hands-on activities and practice. The faculty who teach the review course are able to engage participants and answer questions as they arise. They provide individual feedback and guidance to participants throughout the review course. The course has been developed to align with the NCMA and includes additional content on time management and test-taking skills that will assist student in taking the certification test.
