Program Accreditation Information
Each year the Edgecombe Community College Medical Assisting Program reports the program effectiveness data to the Medical Assisting Review Board (MAERB): The Credentialing Examination Threshold has recently been changed to a participation requirement of 30% of all graduates and a passage rate of 60% of all participants (it is important to note that our data will not be monitored for this threshold until the 2018 annual report due to the new change and it is now reported as of the 2014 annual report). There is no exam history for prior cohorts because of this change.
Note: Students are not able to obtain either one of the 18 credit-hour Certificates without having completed the Associate Degree medical assisting program. In order to obtain the given Certificate, the student must graduate from the ECC Associate Degree medical assisting program, which is a CAAHEP-accredited program.
