New Rules on Experience Effective July 1, 2012

In an effort to fall in line at the national level, the MAA Council has agreed to adopt a policy, whereby back-entering or retroactive entry of experience gained prior to admission as an Intern, will no longer be permitted. (It should be noted that the policy will not apply to internationally educated individuals, who frequently need considerable time to obtain CACB certification and qualify for admission to the Intern Program.)

The policy will take effect on July 1, 2012. The MAA would request the assistance of all employers, to ensure that any and all employees who might be affected, are advised accordingly.
