Certified Clinical Medical Assistant Apprenticeship

After completing this program, graduates will take the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) exam administered by the National Healthcareer Association. The CCMA is a national credential, and it is also one of four exams accepted in Washington State as a pre-requisite to get the Medical Assistant–Certified state credential. Successful program graduates who pass the test will obtain both a state credential (MA-C), which allows them to work at any public or private clinic in Washington State, and a national credential (CCMA), which is accepted by many (but not all) employers in other states.

Apprentices are automatically co-enrolled at one of our partner community colleges. This coenrollment results in college credit at program completion and comes at no extra cost. Sponsored by Washington Association of Community Health
