And the following bonuses!
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.
This program works. It’s worked for hundreds of people. But don’t take my work 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:

Passing the CPC exam is your first step in entering or moving up in working as a medical coder. Being certified gives you certain advantages, including:
Having a recognized qualification. Important if you’re an entry-level coder.
Even if you’re experienced, being certified makes it easier to seek out new opportunities.
Certified coders earn on average $7000 more annually than uncertified personnel.
Having passed the exam makes you more confident that you’ll do well on the job.
If you’re already coding, the process of preparing for and taking the CPC exam will make you a more proficient coder and will help you do your job more efficiently.
So I ask you fellow coder:
Do you really want to take a chance and fail at your next CPC exam?
Don’t you want to prepare and give yourself the best chance to succeed?
What you will be getting is my 2 day/ 12 hour video presentation of myself going though my actual coding manuals and powerpoint slides with you. This is a very effective way to learn this type of material. You will see my key manual guideline notes and learn my proprietary “Bubbling and Highlighting System” to help you quickly find the KEY ANSWERS in your manuals during the open book CPC exams.
This will help YOU highlight your own book so you can quickly find your own answers when you take the exam. Instead of flipping back and forth between pages where the guidelines are, the answers are right next to the codes when you take the board exam- JUMPING OUT AT YOU. My students swear by this technique! They’ve said it gave them the confidence that they needed to pass the exam.
Another plus: My Bubbling and Highlighting Technique helps you in your day to day coding work AFTER the exam too!
