U.S. Career Institute’s Dental Assistant program prepares you to take the Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) certification exam, administered through American Medical Technologists (AMT). Included with our program, we cover the cost of your RDA exam through AMT - $120 value†. USCI encourages graduates to review the RDA test prep materials on the AMT website prior to taking the exam.
