“…they really bolstered my confidence and rounded out my knowledge base!”

I actually took the CRC course through AAPC, but stumbled upon your videos and wished I had taken your course due to the multitude of ways in which you support your students. When the week before the actual exam came around I took it off from work to take as many practice exams as possible and bought both of yours, as well as accessed the free one. I am very glad I did as they really bolstered my confidence and rounded out my knowledge base! Now, I want to go deeper with my coding expertise and would love to get my hands on those Pearls! How? I am also considering taking your ICD-10 coding course for extra practice as I never coded anything in my life prior to taking the course beginning February! Please let me know what you would suggest as a good way to strengthen this skill! I actually find that I LOVE ICD-10 coding!! Thanks so much!!

Can you hear me screaming from the roof top??!! I passed my CPC certification on the very first try! I am so thankful for your Blitz videos and practice exams. I just found out today that I actually passed the test.

Just wanted to say that I took my CPC exam in December and I passed. I honestly feel that this course was amazing! I researched coding and found this site and am so grateful that I did. I was nervous about starting an online course. I felt the Blitz was extremely helpful in helping me pass the exam. It is very important to do the Blitz and practice exams. I don’t feel like I could have done it without CCO! Thank you.
Karie Jarvis-Slayton
I passed my CPC exam on first try with 80%. I could not have done this without the Blitz videos and practice exams. The bubble and highlighting really assisted in my getting thru all 150 questions in the allotted time. My thanks to Laureen and the team as I could not have done it without you guys!!
Lisa Colbert
The Blitz along with several practice tests really helped me feel confident when I walked into the exam. I finished with 40 minutes to spare, which I took to go back over the questions/scenarios I wasn’t super sure I did all I could to answer correctly. I was able to take some time and change a couple of answers in that extra time. And I PASSED my first time taking the CPC exam!
Much thanks to Laureen and Alicia for your help and support! I passed the first time with an 88%! I feel such a sense of accomplishment! I knuckled down and completed the PBC course and the Blitz. The bubbling and highlighting is superb! Also, the practice exams were very helpful as Laureen and Alicia advised. Alicia’s understanding and nurturing coaching style is perfect for me. She was available when I needed her. Looking forward to continuing my studies with both of you.
