From a credentialing agent for an anesthesia practice group: “Mr. John Doe claims that he is not certified by NCCAA because he was ‘grandfathered in.’ Can you help with this?”

NCCAA provides the certification process for anesthesiologist assistants in the United States. The first Certifying Examination was administered in 1992 and has been offered annually thereafter. There has never been a "grandfather period" for certification. The only way an anesthesiologist assistant can become certified is by successfully completing a Certifying Examination.
