About Certification

The AAMI Credentials Institute (ACI) awards certification credentials to healthcare technology professionals and entities in higher education, industry, and healthcare delivery.

As healthcare becomes more complex, certification is one way to demonstrate and showcase competencies. It strengthens the public confidence in safer healthcare systems. Healthcare technology professionals  seek certification as a way of demonstrating their accomplishments, mastery of skills, and experience in core competencies.  Certification helps to highlight a professional's ability to provide quality and trustworthy service.
