American Medical Technologists - Who We Are

Founded in 1939, American Medical Technologists (AMT) is a nationally and internationally recognized certification agency and membership society for the following allied health professionals:

Medical and Dental Office

Medical Technologists (MT)
Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT)
Phlebotomy Technician (RPT)
Medical Laboratory Assistant (CMLA)
Clinical Laboratory Consultant (CLC)

Medical Assistant (RMA)
Medical Administrative Specialist (CMAS)
Dental Assistant (RDA)​​

Health Education

Allied Health Instructor (AHI)

AMT certification examinations are developed, administered, and analyzed using industry standards and state-of-the-art methodologies. Each examination is developed by a committee of subject-matter experts. As the tests provide only one source of information regarding examinee competence, they are used in conjunction with other indicators of training and experience in the granting of certification.  Once certification is granted, applicants automatically become members of AMT and have a host of member benefits at their disposal.

AMT is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).  Not all healthcare certification organizations are NCCA accredited - in fact, very few have received such recognition. Only organizations meeting rigorous NCCA Standards bear the NCCA seal of approval.

AMT Mission Statement

The mission of AMT is to manage, promote, expand upon and continuously improve our certification programs for allied health professionals who work in a variety of disciplines and settings, to administer certification examinations in accordance with the highest standards of accreditation, and to provide continuing education, information, advocacy services and other benefits to our AMT members.

AMT Vision Statement

Our vision is for American Medical Technologists to be acknowledged and recognized by the world as truly being THE premier certification and membership organization for allied health professionals, particularly those in the professions of medical technology, phlebotomy, medical assisting, dental assisting and medical office administration.
