*Prefer a faster paced, but highly successful class that is designed to be completed in just 12 weeks? Our 12-week class does not include the online Blackboard training. Therefore, all of your weekly classes are exclusively with a LIVE certified instructor.
Our CPC Exam Prep instructor-led and Hybrid classes include "live" virtual instructors. This is not a self-study program, our certified instructors go in-depth with helping you understand the coding guidelines, correct application of the code sets (ICD-10-CM, CPT, & HCPCS) and modifiers, illustration of coding scenarios, and abstract coding, and more. Our live sessions are interactive and we "code together".
We offer Weekday and Weekend classes, so check our website regularly. Our weekday classes are held in the evenings and our weekend classes (when offered) are on an every-other-weekend day rotation.
