Certified Medication Technician Challenge Exam

Department: Practical Nursing

The CMT Challenge Exam is available to qualified students who receive approval from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). Exams are given by appointment only.

Fee – $140

Students must have an approval letter from DHSS before registering to test through St. Charles Community College. Contact information for DHSS is 573-526-5686.

Permission to Challenge letters are good for four months from the date on the letter. Students should register for the exam as soon as possible after receiving their approval letter as it could take several weeks to set up an acceptable date to complete the exam.

Students must be employed at an Intermediate or Skilled Nursing Facility and have an active Missouri CNA certificate in order to take the CMT challenge exam.

Exam dates are set by the Health Occupations Program Coordinator once all paperwork is submitted and verified. The exam consists of a written test and a skills demonstration.
