IHCA’s CMA Training Program

IHCA’s CMA Training is a 24-hour program that encompasses the fundamental theories and skills underlying the nursing profession. It prepares students to sit for the Georgia certification exam for medication aide. 

What is a CMA?
A CMA is a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) that is trained to dispense daily medication to patients in Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Community Center Hospices, Schools, Outpatient Facilities or other healthcare facilities.

What does a CMA do?
CMAs may work under the supervision of a Registered Nurse (RN). The CMA will be responsible for dispensing medication to patients daily and monitor dosage and medication use.


In addition to the general responsibilities of a CNA, a CMA may have the following additional duties:


  • Record the quantity of dosage and time of medication usage
  • Collect samples for laboratory analysis
  • Dispense both non-prescription and prescription medication to patients
  • Collaborate with the nursing team to handle patient medication and care
  • Ensure the dispensary is well-stocked with adequate medication supplies
  • Advise and educate patients to ensure they comply with instructions on proper medication use
  • Alert supervisors to any adverse changes in patients due to medication
  • Follow all health regulations to ensure the safety of patients and staff

​The state competency exam fee is $25 and is a separate fee. Upon completion of the training, you will register to take the exam.
