The National Commission for Certification of Anesthesiologist Assistants (NCCAA) provides the certification process for anesthesiologist assistants in
the United States. The National Commission's charter includes assuring the public that certified anesthesiologist assistants (CAA) meet basic standards
related to fund of knowledge and application of that knowledge to the duties of practicing as a certified anesthesiologist assistant. The certification
process for anesthesiologist assistants includes an initial certifying examination, ongoing registration of continuing medical education, and interval
examinations for continued demonstration of qualifications.
