I want to spend a little bit more time on this slide because this is some of the new stuff, and had some questions on our Facebook group, so I wanted to clarify it.
The ICD-10-CM Mini Course that we’ve had for awhile is just that, it’s just a mini course it’s not a full course like our Physician-Based Coding Course or Facility Based-Coding Course. I would say it’s about half as far as how long it takes to get through it, so I call it a 40-hour equivalent course. We’re using the Carol Buck’s “Step-by-Step Medical Coding” book for that, so a lot of people already have that book so we just go over the chapters that she’s devoted to ICD-10. It’s really designed for people that are very proficient at ICD-9 coding; they just need that bridge to be able to be proficient for the AAPC proficiency assessment and for real world coding.

The second one that we’re very excited about is our ICD-10-CM Full Course, it’s currently on special. This is an 80-hour equivalent course, it is a full course, and this one is going to be taught live. This is our first time doing it rather than prerecording the lectures. Alicia is going to be teaching this live every Tuesday and Friday night starting November 5th, is that right Alicia?
Alicia: Yes, I think it was November 5th.
Laureen: Yes. So, we are looking for the first 20 people that want to get in on that. It’s a $300 off to be in that live class, and it’s really great because when it’s a live class it really keeps you on track to finish. Sometimes, the only disadvantage, what I could say about it is that we get to go at our own pace. It’s the biggest advantage, but it’s also the biggest disadvantage because we tend to – life starts to interfere, and then our coaches have to really coach you online to keep you on track. But with the live one, you got to show up for class, you’re going to be doing homework, it’s due by the next class. That will go in a nice fast pace, and before you know it, it will be over; but it’s a very thorough, lots of exercises on every single organ system that’s covered in ICD-10. We’re very excited about it. It’s using a text, and I looked at, evaluated about 6 to 7 different textbooks and I really, really like this one. It’s called the Worktext and its “Understanding ICD-10-CM” and there’s even chapter on PCS which we will be having a course on that toward the – I would say the middle of next year. We’re focusing on CM but with the PCS extension that will be basically be, what
