    there are some schools that train and give certifcation. My sister in law took a class at it was $ 15,0000

Though I do have some friends as a M.A and they just got on the job training . Guess it depends on where you live and the place you are applying for

    I have been an RN for 35 years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:


In most states, there are no formal educational requirements for becoming a medical assistant. Most have at least a high school diploma. Many assistants learn through on-the-job training.

The median annual wage of medical assistants was $28,860 in May 2010.

Employment is expected to grow by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will stem from physicians hiring more medical assistants to do routine administrative and clinical duties so that physicians can see more patients.

You might try inquiring in some of your local physician offices about their requirements for medical assistant employment. If many offices require a medical assistant diploma or certificate, your next move would be to inquire with your local or regional community college or technical school about their medical assistant programs. You can obtain their course catalog and speak with their admissions director about class schedules in the medical assistant program.

Hope that helps. :-)
