Certification Exam

Quality Career Pathways is a designated testing site for the CMA written test. This designation is approved by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. This means that once you complete your course, you do not have to go elsewhere to take your exam. It happens all under the same roof.

Additionally, when you take a course at Quality Career Pathways your first attempt at taking your exams is INCLUDED in your tuition. Some other schools exclude testing fees in their tuition costs in order to appear less expensive. But not at QCP. One attempt to pass the exams is always included. No surprise fees.
