New York Medication Aide Certification Examination (MACE) Testing

New York State

The Medication Aide Certification Examination (MACE) is a national medication aide certification examination that is administered in New York to certified Home Health Aides who have successfully completed a New York State approved Advanced Home Health Aide Training Program (AHHATP). NCSBN develops the MACE examination and administers the exam with the contractual assistance of Pearson VUE. In order to qualify as an Advanced Home Health Aide, you must successfully complete a New York State approved Advanced Home Health Aide Training Program and pass the MACE. You are eligible to take the MACE up to two times within 180 days from the first day of AHHATP class. If you fail the MACE twice within the 180 day time period, you will have to successfully complete another approved AHHATP. All MACE test results (Pass or Fail) will be communicated to the New York State Home Care Worker Registry and your AHHATP.
