CCS Exam Prep

Next Sessions Start September 12/13, 2014.

AHIMA’s Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) credential demonstrates a practitioner’s mastery of coding proficiency.  While increasing numbers of employers now require CCS credentials for their coding staff, the CCS examination is known to be difficult and many skilled coders do not pass the exam on their first attempt.  There is a solution.

Libman Education’s thirteen-week course, CCS Exam Prep, has proven very successful in preparing students to pass the CCS exam.  The course does not teach you how to code, but rather provides a thorough review of the materials covered by the exam coupled with proven test-taking strategies.

Libman Education’s CCS Exam Prep is Designed for Student Success

Enrollment in Libman Education’s CCS Exam Prep is strictly limited to encourage class participation and provide plenty of individual attention.  To ensure a greater likelihood of success, students should be prepared to sit for the CCS examination shortly after completion of the course.

Students who register for Libman Education’s CCS Exam Prep must be prepared to attend all class sessions, review all recorded lectures, and complete the necessary additional course work.  The expected out-of-class work is an additional 10-15 hours per week depending on the subject matter and the student’s individual experience.  Weekly assignments must be completed on a timely basis to ensure productive class time.  It is our experience that students unable to commit the necessary time and energy to the course will not be prepared to successfully sit for the CCS exam.  Students unable to keep current with the coursework may be asked to withdraw from the course.
