ARMA was incorporated on September 22, 1950 by the originators who were Registered Nurses and assistants in local medical offices, hence the title “Registered” applies to our members. We are registered with the Federal Government, Washington, DC, and have been designated a non-profit organization.
Being a national registry, we are represented in every state, including corpsmen and medics in military service hospitals and clinics, and currently have a membership in the many thousands. We are not an employment agency, training center or a school operating for profit, but rather an organization whose purpose is to advance the status and professionalism of the Medical Assistant. Our members are represented in many areas within the medical allied health professions.
We are now seeing the results of our efforts in that many medical facilities now require registration (certification) prior to hiring new employees. This is manifesting itself into upgrading the “Medical Assistant” as a true professional as well as upgrading her/his salary scale.
The many schools and colleges with whom we are affiliated incorporate their students’ registration with their graduation exercises.
Currently, the requirement for annual renewal is the accumulation of a minimum of 12 Continuing Educational Activities – equivalent to learning, or attendance in some area within the medical field – to maintain one’s proficiency and professionalism.
Since, as stated earlier, many of our members are certified in other areas within the medical profession and are required by those organizations to obtain CEU’s to comply, we may accept those acquired to satisfy our requirements.
We are always on the lookout for additional areas, which may assist our members to a better way of life while keeping our fees as low as possible.
The Registry is an independent organization in no way connected to other medical assisting certifying agencies or organizations. We operate with a Board of Directors of which the Director and Executive Secretary are the primary officers involved in the day-to-day operation of the office. Work performed by all Board Members is done without remuneration.
The Minnesota Department of Health maintains the Nursing Assistant Registry, which lists the names of individuals who have completed an approved nursing assistant training and testing program or testing program and meet state and federal requirements to work in nursing homes and certified boarding care homes.

The Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) is the primary state health agency for the state of Alabama.
The mission of the Alabama Department of Public Health is to promote, protect, and improve the health of individuals and communities of Alabama.
The Alabama Department of Public Health will lead the state in assuring the health of Alabamians by promoting healthy, safe, prepared, and informed communities.
Alabama law designates the State Board of Health as an advisory board to the state in all medical matters, matters of sanitation, and public health. The Medical Association, which meets annually, is the State Board of Health. The State Committee of Public Health meets monthly between the annual meetings and is authorized to act on behalf of the State Board of Health. The
State Health Officer is empowered to act on behalf of the State Committee of Public Health when the committee is not in session.
More than 135 years ago, medical leaders in Alabama advocated constitutional authority to oversee matters of public health. The purpose of the authority was to develop a system of hygiene to preserve and prolong life; to plan an educational program for all people on the rules which govern a healthful existence; and to determine a way for enforcing health laws for the welfare of all people.
