If you take the test by computer, your score will appear immediately. If you take the pencil-and-paper test, your results will arrive by mail six to eight weeks after you take the exam. A score of 70 or above is required for passing the test.

A scaled scoring system is used, and a score of 70 does not relate to the number of items scored correctly or the percentage of correct answers on the test. Students who fail the examination will be given detailed information about the areas in which weak test performance was noted. This will allow students to focus their studies and prepare to test again. Students who have to retake the exam must complete the entire examination.

RMA Exam Content

Similar to the CMA exam, the RMA exam covers three areas of content: general medical assisting knowledge (about 43 percent of the test items), administrative knowledge (about 23 percent of the test items), and clinical aspects of medical assisting (about 35 percent of the test items).

The RMA candidate handbook outlines the content areas covered in the exam. These content areas are more general than the CMA exam, but the exam covers essentially the same material with less emphasis on administrative competencies. See the AMT website for more information (amt1.com). Following are the content areas covered by the RMA exam

Work Area Number of
Percentage of
Anatomy and Physiology 46 21.9%
Administrative Medical Assisting 75 35.7%
Clinical Medical Assisting 31 14.7%
Clinical Patient Interaction 58 27.6%
210 100.0%

Test Eligibility and Registration

To take the RMA exam, you must be at least 18 and a high school graduate from an accredited or approved equivalent. You must also meet one of the following medical assistant education requirements:

Be a graduate of an accredited medical assisting program determined by CAAHEP or ABHES. Be a graduate of a medical assisting program in a college or postsecondary school accredited by a regional accrediting commission or by a group that the U.S. Department of Education approves. Complete a formal medical services training program of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Instead of these educational requirements, applicants are eligible to take the exam if they have five years of experience in medical assisting. No more than two of these years may have been spent as an instructor in a medical assisting program.

The RMA examination is offered in two formats. One is administered on a computer-based testing system under contract with Pearson VUE test centers, which are located at several hundred sites throughout the United States and its territories.

A list of centers can be found at pearsonvue.com/amt. In addition, the AMT offers pencil-and-paper testing at the VUE test centers. Computer-based and paper exams have the same form and content. To apply for the RMA exam, you must apply to the AMT registrar and receive an approval letter authorizing your eligibility to take the exam. A $90 fee is required with the application. Applications are available on the AMT website (amt1.com). You also may contact AMT by phone, fax, or mail:
