American Medical Technologists (AMT) is a national agency that certifies seven primary designations of healthcare personnel: medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians, office laboratory technicians, medical assistants, phlebotomy technicians, dental assistants and medical office administrative specialists. The organization’s purpose is to help protect the welfare of the public by maintaining competency standards in these occupations.
AMT Certification examinations are intended to evaluate the competence of entry-level practitioners. The examinations address content areas defined and validated by subject-matter experts, educators and individuals working in their respective fields. As the examinations 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.
Before scheduling an examination appointment, you must have already:
- Registered for your examination(s) with AMT;
- Received your Authorization to Test letter from AMT;
- Paid an examination authorization fee to AMT.
Please carefully review the information contained in your Authorization to Test letter. If any of the information is incorrect, or if the information has changed, please contact AMT at 800-275-1268.
