Our CPC Exam Prep Hybrid weekday and weekend classes include "live" instructor led classes.  Our online learning management system (LMS) includes chapter modules, exercises, quizzes, and exams. But, the best part is that our Hybrid program includes weekly "live" instructor led training via Zoom.  This is not a self-study program, our certified coder instructors go more 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.  Our weekday classes are held in the evenings and our weekend classes are on an every other weekend rotation.
