How to Become a Medical Review Officer Assistant

DATIA's Medical Review Officer Assistant Training Course delivers comprehensive training on industry best practices, provides helpful hints for successful implementation, and helps MRO Assistants to achieve success. The course is designed for those who actively assist MROs and those who have regular contact with donors, employers, and program administrators. This program will help to ensure that MRO Assistant duties are performed in a professional and consistent manner, maintaining confidentiality for the donor, and ensuring security and integrity in the process. DATIA’s new training course is the only national training program for MRO Assistants, and is now the prerequisite for MRO Assistant certification through the Medical Review Officer Certification Council (MROCC).

After successful completion of DATIA’s Medical Review Officer Assistant Training Course, attendees are eligible to apply for MRO Assistant Certification through the Medical Review Officer Certification Commission (MROCC). This three-year certification – awarded upon successful completion and passing of the MROCC MRO-A online examination -- acknowledges competency in those practical skills the MRO Assistant applies in fulfilling his or her professional responsibilities within the workplace drug testing arena.
