I completed the course, but the CEU sheet is missing. How do I find it?2022-06-17T17:11:54-04:00

When a brand-new course is made available, there is sometimes a delay while we wait for the program to receive prior approval from AAPC and/or AHIMA.  As soon as the course receives approval, the CEU sheet will be posted to your achievements tab.

How do I get my certificate of completion and CEUs?2022-06-17T17:11:29-04:00

Once you complete all the course lessons (you must view all the slides!) and successfully pass the assessment(s), a downloadable PDF Certificate of Completion will be available in the Achievements tab found at the top of your dashboard.

Do your courses offer CEUs?2022-06-17T17:11:02-04:00

With few exceptions, Libman Education courses are pre-approved by AHIMA and/or AAPC for continuing education credit. The number of CEUs pre-approved by either association will always be stated on the course information page.  Stand-alone assessments, credential review courses and non-coding related offerings may not provide CEU credit. Please see the individual product listing for information on CEUs offered.

I am getting ready for my credential exam. Will I need coding books?2022-06-17T17:10:37-04:00

If you are attempting a coding credential you will need a physical copy of the appropriate code book to take with you into the exam.  We recommend that you use a physical code book as you prepare for the credential exam so that you are familiar with the contents and can find what you are looking for quickly.

Will I need coding books?2022-06-17T17:10:12-04:00

 Most courses require access to the code set (ICD-10-CM, ICD-10-PCS or CPT) in order to complete the course work. It is important that you have access to the correct year of the code set that matches your course materials.  You may choose to purchase a code book, or you may access the code set online or through your encoder.  Links to code books are provided under the books tab on the course description page on our website.

Are books included?2022-06-17T17:09:44-04:00

Unless otherwise specified, books and other materials are not included in the price of the course. We do not sell textbooks or reference materials, but as a courtesy do include links to various retail sellers of the required materials under the books tab on the course description page on our website.

What if I have a question about the material while taking a course?2022-06-17T17:09:17-04:00

A Libman Education Instructor is always available to answer questions regarding the course material and can be reached by clicking the orange “feedback” button at the top of the course screen.  Simply send a message to our instructor and they will respond to you shortly. In most cases, you will be able to move along in the course while waiting for a response.

Are your courses instructor led? What if I have a question, is there someone I can ask?2022-06-17T17:08:52-04:00

Libman Education courses are on-line, self-paced courses which allow you to work at your own speed and as your schedule permits. Instructors are available to answer questions by email or by using the “feedback” button within each course. Don’t hesitate to reach out. We want to hear from you!

How does the eLearning Library work?2022-06-17T17:08:27-04:00

The eLearning Library offers unlimited access to targeted online training for an extended period of time, usually one year.  Courses can be taken in any order.  eLearning Libraries are available in several versions (inpatient, pediatrics, HCCs, etc.) with courses selected specifically for coders working in that area or specialty.

Are courses up-to-date?2022-06-17T17:08:01-04:00

Codes and guidelines change yearly and keeping coding up to date is a challenge (!). Our ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS courses are updated prior to the October 1 implementation of new codes; our CPT courses are updated prior to the January 1 implementation of new codes. 

In rare circumstances courses are delayed and not updated in accordance with this schedule. The courses are ‘waitlisted’ until they can be updated. Join our waitlist for a course that has been delayed and you will be notified as soon as it becomes available.

How long does it take to complete a course?2022-06-17T17:07:36-04:00

Our courses are self-paced, so you can work at your own speed and as your schedule allows. Based on our student’s experience, we estimate it will take a student 1-3 hours per CEU to complete a course. For example, a 2 CEU course will likely take a student 2-6 hours from start to finish. The variation is due to differences in learning style, degree of familiarity with the topic, and comfort with the online learning experience.  As you work with our courses, you may find you need more or less than 1-3 hours per CEU, and you should use your experience to plan your time requirements.

What are your on-line courses like? How are the courses structured?2022-06-17T17:07:03-04:00

Libman Education’s proprietary WebinarPlus™ multimedia and interactive online course format promotes engagement with challenging materials while offering independent self-study.  Teaching methods including audio and video files, diagrams, and animations to accommodate different learning styles. Libman Education instructors are available to answer questions via email or by using the ‘feedback’ button within each course.

How do the courses work? How are courses delivered?2022-06-17T17:06:34-04:00

Courses are hosted on the Libman Education learning management system and are delivered online. You can access your course from any computer that has an internet connection with your unique and secure login and password.

How do I find out the correct answer for a question I keep getting wrong? Is a rationale provided for the answers I got wrong?2022-06-17T17:06:03-04:00

For some courses, upon successful completion of an assessment a rationale document is automatically emailed to you. Not all courses have a rationale document provided. For example, coding skills assessments, including pre-employment assessments, which measure your current level of knowledge, do not include rationales.

To see the correct answer for a write-in answer, you may click the ‘Export PDF’ button from the right-hand side of your assessment results page.

Still not clear on why your answer is incorrect?  Use the “Feedback” button found in the top right corner of your screen when opening a module within a course. Simply type your question here, click send and a Subject Matter Expert will get back to you.

How do I find my assessment results? How do I see what I got right and wrong?2022-06-17T17:05:36-04:00

This will open a document that provides the correct answer to each question along with the answer you choose.  

For skills assessments only the grade is provided, you are not able to view right or wrong answers.
