- The CCMG recognizes ABMGG specialty certification as evidence of successful completion of CCMG-accredited training.

Evidence of completion of a prescribed course of accredited training must be submitted by the applicant’s training program director.

The CCMG reserves the right to require additional training to ensure that its requirements for certification are met.
