Phlebotomy & Medical Assisting

Bay Area Medical Academy is approved by the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT) as a testing site for the following exams:

  • National Certified Medical Assistant (NCMA)
  • National Certified Phlebotomy Technician (NCPT)

Testing dates are available most Sundays at the San Francisco and San Jose campuses, but individual weeks may vary due to scheduling matters.


I was going into my second year as an unemployed CNA who couldn’t find time to complete continued education hours. I was working temporary jobs that simply didn’t bring in enough income. Bay Area Medical Academy has given me the opportunity to move up in the medical field with the CPT-1 and EKG certificate, which I had a long-time desire in. This has given me a stable job with good benefits. I gained much self-confidence and experience. Thank you!
