Licenses and Certifications

Medical assistants and dermatology technicians are not legally required to be licensed or certified. However, some employers prefer to hire employees who possess one of three certifications.

Certified Medical Assistant (CMA)

Before applying for CMA certification, applicants must graduate from an accredited medical assisting program. The American Association of Medical Associates awards the certification, which must be renewed every five years.

Registered Medical Assistant (RMA)

The RMA certification is offered by American Medical Technologists. Applicants must graduate from an accredited medical assistant program and possess a minimum 720 hours in medical assisting experience. Additionally, applicants must be employed for the last five years as a medical assistant. Once candidates obtain their certification, every three years they must complete a specific number of ongoing education classes.

Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA)

The National Healthcareer Association offers CCMA certification, which means the applicant is competent in clinical and laboratory procedures as well as administrative functions. Candidates must complete an approved training program and work in the medical assistant field for at least one year. Individuals must complete continuing education courses to maintain certification.

Workshops and Seminars

Professional organizations and healthcare facilities host annual dermatology conferences and workshops for dermatology technicians. Lasting anywhere from 2-5 days, these meetings feature several symposia and interactive workshops. Dermatology seminars, which last 2-3 days, allow attendees to obtain continuing medical education credits. Dermatology technicians can learn about new procedures in areas such as age reversal, facial rejuvenation and acne treatment.

Additional Professional Development

Dermatology technicians who possess RMA or CCMA certification must adhere to continuing education credit requirements. Otherwise, as with any medical profession, dermatology technicians must keep current with updates to medical technology and procedures. Technicians can also enroll in further education to become nurses.
