Re: What different between RMA and CMA?

The difference is the association that you test through. The CMA is associated with American Association of Medical Assistants, RMA is through American Medical Technologists. Both offer testing and distribute certifications, but the titles are a bit different- certified vs registered. I have not seen a difference in pay in regards to the two, as I have had both. They are both well recognized associations.
