CCPMA Renewal

Holding the designation of a Certified Clinical Podiatric Medical Assistant (CCPMA) from the American College of Foot & Ankle Orthopedics & Medicine is a valuable credential that verifies a specified level of knowledge, skills, and abilities to work in a clinical assisting role to a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine.

The CCPMA requires re-certification to demonstrate  current knowledge in the sills required. The first step is complete the re-certification application and submit the $75 re-certification fee.

Re-certification Application

Passing a 20-question multiple choice exam on some basic knowledge is required for the re-certification of the CCPMA. This test is a subset of the questions used in the two much longer exams you took for initial certification.  If you have been working as a CCPMA in a podiatry office the information tested should not be new to you.  Once the re-certification application is received, a link to the exam will be sent to you.

To demonstrate the current knowledge in the skills required a skills log will need to be completed by the supervising DPM.

Re-certification Skills Log

You will also be required to sign a Scope of Practice Agreement to testify that you adhering to the rules of the CCPMA. This is required for re-certification.
