Facts About AAs
For information about national certification of anesthesiologist assistants, or for a list of certified AAs, please contact the NCCAA:
National Commission for the Certification of Anesthesiologist Assistants
You may request applications, forms, Rules for Reinstatement, or other non-official communications by phone: (877) 558-0411, fax: 919-573-5440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Requests for verification of an AA's certification status must come from the AA. The request may be faxed or mailed and should include the AA's name, Social Security# , and the full name & address of the agency or practice group to whom verification status should be sent.
Upon completion of an accredited AA program, a student may become certified by passing the NCCAA examination. The examination is administered and scored by the National Board of Medical Examiners as part of services contracted to NCCAA. Performance information for test items and the overall exam are provided by NBME. NCCAA uses this data to set the passing score and provides notification of certification. NCCAA awards a time-limited certificate to each candidate who successfully completes the Certifying Examination. To re-certify, an AA must complete 40 hours of CME every two years and register the activities with NCCAA. Additionally, AAs must take the Continuing Demonstration of Qualification Exam every six years.
