MOSES LAKE — Big Bend Community College’s Medical Assistant program has cause for celebration as 100 percent of the graduating class of 2019 has passed their American Medical Technologists (AMT) exam and are recognized as Registered Medical Assistants (RMA).

American Medical Technologists (AMT) is a national agency that certifies seven primary designations of healthcare personnel — including medical assistants. The organization’s purpose is to help protect the welfare of the public by maintaining competency standards.

“To say that I am proud of these students would be a massive understatement,” said Instructor Briana West MA-C, B.S. “Through tears of stress, and lack of sleep these students persevered and worked so hard for their success; hours upon hours in the lab and studying for their AMT exam and it showed! I would be proud to work with any of them in the field and look forward to some volunteering their time with our incoming cohort.”
