Every year thousands of new and experienced medical assistants applying for jobs are asked to show potential employers reliable documentation of their education, training, knowledge and skills, despite the fact that not every highly skilled and qualified medical assistant is always certified.
Most employers now expect 1-3 years job experience and certifications, or else they are hesitant to hire. However, does certification automatically mean that one medical assistant is better than another? For instance, is a recent graduate from a medical assistant school with certification better qualified than an applicant who received his/her medical assisting and first aid training in the Military and has worked in the health care field for many consecutive years without ever getting certified?
