Course provides proven test-taking strategies to help increase one’s chances of success
BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS – January 15, 2015 – The newest session of Libman Education’s highly-acclaimed CCS Exam Prep course is officially set to begin in April 2015. Taught by leading CCS expert Mary Beth York, the course provides coders an opportunity to prepare for the Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) Exam prior to the ICD-10 implementation date of October 1, 2015.
“Because of the upcoming scheduled transition to ICD-10,” said York, “we want to make the course available to as many medical coders as possible. As challenging as the CCS exam is, it will be even more challenging if coders prepare for it while also learning ICD-10-CM/PCS. But if coders first finish their CCS preparation and earn their credential, they can focus their efforts on ICD-10 without the added pressure.”
A veteran medical coder and CCS teacher, York has mentored hundreds of students to CCS success. Most CCS Exam Prep students who complete the Libman Education course work pass the CCS Exam on their first attempt.
The 13-week online course combines online video, presentations, and practice exams with live interaction with the instructor. A thorough review of the materials covered by the CCS exam is provided, along with proven test-taking strategies to help increase one’s chances of success.
Students can choose from the following class meeting times:
- Fridays, 7 a.m. EST (Session starts April 10, 2015)
- Saturdays, 10 a.m. EST (Session starts April 11, 2015)
- Saturdays, noon EST (Session starts April 11, 2015)
