Recertification standards for the CMA (AAMA) give evidence of continuing competency and knowledge.
Current Status | Current status is required in order to use the CMA (AAMA) credential.
Effective January 1, 2010, all newly certified and recertifying CMAs (AAMA) will be current for 60 months from the end of the calendar month of initial certification or most recent recertification.
Recertification Methods | CMAs (AAMA) may choose one of two ways to recertify:
Review and complete the Candidate Application and Handbook for the CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Examination and provide the required documentation and enrollment fee.
By Continuing Education
Review and complete the AAMA Recertification By Continuing Education Application and provide the required documentation and enrollment fee.
Expired Status | Those not recertifying on or before the expiration date of their credential will be considered as having an expired credential. They may reactivate the credential by recertifying by examination or continuing education.
Expired 60+ Months | A CMA (AAMA) whose credential has expired for more than 60 months forfeits the right to reactivate the credential by continuing education and must sit for the CMA (AAMA) Certification/Recertification Examination.
