National Certification Exam Registration

Whether you are a student or already employed in the field, being certified means that you are dedicated to your chosen field. Show your commitment to professional development, patient care and quality work by earning your NCCA-accredited certification through NHA. Passing a nationally accredited exam means a student is more likely to be work-ready. Employers value the standardization national certification provides and use it to screen job applicants. Employers are also more likely to increase pay when an employee earns a professional certification.

Exam details will be emailed to participants 2 weeks prior to the exam. Fees are nonrefundable. HSC’s CCMA exam pass rate is 98%. The national average is 78%.

You must bring a current government-issued photo ID to testing. Results are available immediately after your test for the online exam.

Notes

  • NHA recommends using wired network connections for proctored testing. Wireless/Wi-fi connections may be unreliable and could negatively affect testing.
  • Min resolution 1024 x 600.
  • Javascript and cookies must both be enabled within browser.
  • Android’s default browser is not supported; download chrome for a better experience.
  • Allow *.nhanow.com through the browser pop-up blocker (note some browsers may require user to enable tabbing.).
  • Clear browsing history and exit the browser prior to any testing.
  • Allow *.nhanow.com through all proxy/caching servers.
  • Satellite ISPs: NHA’s website functionality depends on direct connections to our website and databases in order to accurately display content. Because many ISPs cache webpages rather than allowing connection to the originating website, we are not able to guarantee performance of our website over a satellite connection.
  • Run a network speed test at http://www.speedtest.net from the testing location to ensure bandwidth is sufficient.
  • Close all applications that could draw attention away from the testing window (Antivirus scans, System Updates, etc.).
  • NHA internally tests their products using JAWS and NVDA to promote WCAG 2.0 compliant operations for assistive reading.

NHA recommends whitelisting the following sites/IP addresses.
