Total Study Hours: 150 Hrs.
90-Day self-paced study program with online access to Acusis Online Learning Management System.
Systematically structured theory sessions run on Acusis’ Learning Content Management System spread over the entire 90 days which helps candidates to track their progress, pace, and learning curve and efficiently manage time. Instant feedback helps candidates in assessing areas of strengths and weakness and practice lessons based on their areas of weakness are instituted to improve their skills in a timely manner.
Practical training consists of transcription, editing, and proofreading of a variety of reports. Appropriate practical training sessions are placed at required intervals over the entire 90 days. The breakup and the evaluations closely mimic the actual CMT exam.
The CMT Prep Exam will be held after successful completion of the course. Performance in this exam against the benchmarked scores helps determine the preparedness of the candidate for the actual CMT exam.
The CMT Simulation Exam will be held after successful completion of CMT Prep Exam. The format and the evaluation methodology used in the CMT Simulation Exam follows the actual CMT exam. Very effectively benchmarked scores of this exam help us in evaluating candidates’ performance against performance of their predecessors who have successfully completed the AHDI CMT certification exam.
NOTE: The CMT exam has been renamed as Credential Qualifying Exam (CQE).
CQE will deliver a candidate both exams, Registered Medical Transcriptionist (RMT) and Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMT), in a single setting, allowing the testing engine to determine qualification based on cut scores for each competency level.
A CQE candidate would sit for a 250-question test whereby they would be tested on RMT content first, and if cut scores for level 1 content are met, the candidate would then be put through the CMT content. At the end of a single exam session, the candidate would leave with either one of the following:
1) If the candidate clears level 1 and level 2, the candidate will be CMT certified.
2) If the candidate clears level 1, but does not clear level 2, the candidate will be RMT certified.
3) If the candidate does not clear level 1 (at which point the exam will terminate), the candidate will not be certified.
The above process will ensure that all CMT candidates will have made it through level 1 content before moving on to level 2. This means that RMT is a prerequisite for the CMT.
