Welcome to Medical Assistant Certification Guide

We are glad you are here. Medical Assistant Certification Guide.org is the web’s #1 guide for medical assistants, CMAs and those considering a career in the industry. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics says this about the current job outlook for medical assistants:

Employment of medical assistants is expected to grow by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to spur demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As their practices expand, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients. Assistants will likely continue to be used in place of more expensive workers, such as nurses, to reduce costs.

That means that there is a promising future for the industry and we hope to provide you with the information and resources you need as you pursue your career. Medical Assistant Certification Guide.org has put together state by state guides detailing out

  • The basic skills of medical assistants
  • How to become certified
  • The job outlook by state
  • State by state salary ranges for Medical Assistants (city by city information where available)
  • Specifics on transferring and renewing your certification
  • Useful resources for Medical Assistants

You can use the map below to find your state and the specific information relevant to that state.

If you have specific questions, feel free to contact us through the contact form.

The best way you can thank us for putting together these guides is to share them with your friends, co-workers or anyone else who might be interested in a career helping people as a CMA.
