ELIGIBILITY AND REQUIREMENTS BY NAMSS
Effective Fall, 2015, NAMSS has modified the eligibility requirements for the CPCS and CPMSM examinations. Among the changes: A CPCS or CPMSM in good standing will no longer automatically qualify for one or the other examinations.
For the CPCS exam:
At the time of application, the candidate must be currently employed in the medical services profession for at least the past 12 consecutive months AND have a total of three years' experience in the medical services profession within the past five years.
For the CPMSM exam:
At the time of application, the candidate must be currently employed in the medical services profession for at least the past 12 consecutive months AND have a total of five years' experience in the medical services profession within the past eight years.
The previous qualification (Be a CPCS or CPMSM in good standing AND be employed for at least the past 12 consecutive months in the medical services profession) was removed based on data that reflected a 90% failure rate for CPMSM candidates with less than five years' experience.
