Re: What is the difference between a CMA and RMA

none,your title depends on the company that issues the certification.

Re: What is the difference between a CMA and RMA

Well, there IS one big difference....

As a CMA through the AAMA, you are required to have continuing education (60 credits in 5 years).

As an RMA through the AMT, no continung ed is required.

That concerns me a little bit....

Your Professional Title/Credentials: CMA (AAMA)

Are You Still In School? Nope!!
