Certified Medication Assistants are trained individuals who specialize in administering medication to people who need assistance receiving medications, such as the elderly, disabled, or those in treatment facilities.  A MAC is typically a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) or Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) who works in a long-term care or mental health facility under the direction of a licensed nurse.  Before enrolling in this training, you should research the company for whom you want to work to see if they do require their MAC to be a CNA or CMA.
