Watch Laureen show you her proprietary Bubbling and Highlighting™ Technique
You were pretty enthusiastic when you first started studying but as the exam draws nearer you are starting to feel “a sense of dread.” Maybe even overwhelm?
Maybe you are one of the people who is:
- Not sure if you are prepared for the pass or fail exam (70% correct minimum!)
- Having a hard time managing your study time
- Wondering if you will finish in the allotted 5 and a half hours
… you are basically freaking out with the thought of failing your next attempt at your CPC® exam!
Guess what… I was there once before just like you. I remember a time when I was in overwhelm in a hotel room with the test looming just days in the future. I had to pass the test. My job depended on it. Believe me, I feel your pain!
Maybe this is your first time taking the CPC® exam. Maybe you have failed before and this is your second or third time trying to get certified. Either way, you are desperate for any method that you could use to improve your chances of passing the medical coding exam. Well, I have good news…
You’ve come to the right place!

My name is Laureen Jandroep (CPC®, CPC®-I, Senior Instructor) and I’ve been teaching and coaching medical coders to prepare to be certified coders for the AAPC (American Society of Professional Coders) or American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) physician based board exams since 1999. I have taken and passed many of the board exams including: CPC®, CPC®-I, CPC®-H, CCS-P, CCS, RCC and OTR.
I started my career in medical coding when I ran my own successful rehab practice in New Jersey that at it’s zenith served over 17 long term care facilities with 26 therapists, aides and support staff. My company was approved by Medicare and billed over $1.6 Million annually with less than a .06% rejection rate — unheard of in the rehab industry. The reason for this success was making sure my company billed based on source documentation and provided ongoing training to my therapists regarding proper coding. So believe me- I know about coding!
I have a unique way of teaching myself new concepts and I share that with my students. So they “get it”. As fast as possible. Because medical coding demands that we stay current on changes in medical coding billing. So let me tell you…
There is a solution to CPC® exam overwhelm.
You see, it doesn’t have to be that hard. You don’t need to stress. After all, the exam is open book right? You just need to get organized, focus on whats important to pass the test… and don’t sweat the small stuff!
There is an easier way! Let me explain…

The Birth of “Medical Coding Blitz Videos”
I have been teaching medical coding in a full time or part time capacity since 1999. Back in the day I took all the certification exams so that my students could see that I felt their pain and knew what they were going to be going through. This helped me to understand the format of the exams and prepare my students for what was going to be covered in the exam.
But my students wanted more. A few years ago while I was teaching a longer CPC® traing class, my students pleaded “Help us get ready for next weeks exam!” So we reviewed the whole CPC® training program in two days. And that’s how the Blitz Videos were born.
For over 11 years now I have been teaching this review program- with many students successfully passing their CPC® exam after viewing my videos.
Will These Videos Help Me Pass the CPC® Exam?
This program works. It’s worked for hundreds of people. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s just some of the testimonials I have received from some of the happy students who have purchased my CPC® Exam preparation Videos over the last few years:

Since I started my training before ICD-10 was implemented, I began my studies using ICD-9. Since my employer wanted me certified ASAP, I signed up for the CPC exam as soon as I completed the PBC course. I had 10 days to learn ICD-10 and prepare for the AAPC exam. With the help and support of my coach and others at CCO, I was able to pass--and on my first attempt! The ICD-10 BLITZ and one-on-one coach/student relationship made a world of a difference.Also, being employed full time, 6 months would not have been enough time for me to finish a course for CPC training. Having a full year to complete CCO's PBC course allowed me to get the training I needed, while being able to continue working full time (and still have a life)! I'm already signed up to take my next course through CCO. I would highly recommend using CCO for any coding training--there's no way I could have done it without them.
I took my CPC on Saturday for the first time. Felt super ready after studying with the BLITZ. I left the test feeling confident that I have done really well. There are some super tips and suggestions in the BLITZ program. Helped A LOT! Well worth the $ and time. :) Thanks again CCO!
