CERTIFIED CLINICAL MEDICAL ASSISTANT
Athens CPR & Safety now offers CCMA courses.
Certified Clinical Medical Assistant – NHA Allied Healthcare Certification
The Certified Clinical Medical Assisting (CCMA) student will be trained to perform at a minimum entry level in positions normally available in a medical facility such as physicians’, chiropractors’, or podiatrists’ offices and clinics. The program provides students with entry-level theory and limited “hands-on” training in basic and routine clinical and office tasks. This will equip the CMA with the competencies required to perform in either a clinical or office capacity. The graduate will be able to assist in EKG, X -ray procedures, first aid, and phlebotomy. He/She will be able to perform clinical procedures, preparing the patient for physical exams, and assisting the physician with other exams. CMA’s may help the physician with minor surgical procedures and can sterilize and care for instruments. The CMA possesses a thorough understanding of health-related ethics and other business principles that bear on the practitioner’s relationship with the patient.
All prospective students must complete the TABE test and score an 8.0 or higher
Estimated Completion Time: 2.5 months
