About ACI Certification

The AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI) awards certification credentials to professionals in healthcare technology and industry. Over the years, AAMI has certified more than 8,800 professionals in close to 40 countries.

As healthcare becomes more complex, certification is one way to demonstrate and showcase competencies. It strengthens the public confidence in safer healthcare systems. Professionals  seek certification as a way of:

  • Demonstrating their accomplishments
  • Showcasing a mastery of skills
  • Validating experience in core competencies

Certification helps to highlight a professional's ability to provide quality and trustworthy service.
