Kino College is an authorized school and testing site for the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT) National Certified Medical Assistant (NCMA) examination. The Professional Medical Assistant curriculum prepares students to take the NCMA exam. Students who take and pass the exam during the program receive NCMA certification upon graduation, a certification recognized in all 50 states. Students electing not to take the exam during their program may take it as a graduate at the Kino College testing site.
Whereas medical assistant certification is beneficial for employment and is required by certain employers as a condition of employment, it is not required by the State of Arizona.
