2 Certified Coder Boot Camp See the HCPro difference for yourself This isn t just any coding course. Check out all the benefits of the HCPro Boot Camp: CUSTOM-DESIGNED COURSE MATERIALS All course materials were custom-developed by HCPro specifically for this intensive learning format. HANDS-ON LEARNING During the course, you will complete approximately 500 coding exercises, including a 150-question practice CPC exam and numerous operative reports. You ll also receive a printed answer key for all exercises, including the practice exam. LIVE INSTRUCTION All classes are taught by an experienced, highly credentialed, live instructor. No computer-based instruction or videotapes are used. SMALL CLASS SIZE We limit the number of course participants in order to retain a low participantto-teacher ratio. This allows us to provide individual instruction as needed when course participants find a topic to be particularly challenging. STUDENT-DRIVEN At the conclusion of the course, we ask all course participants to complete an evaluation, which we carefully review for feedback and course enhancement. HIGHLY RATED Course participants consistently give the course an overall rating of 4.5 or higher (on a 5.0-point scale). WELL-ESTABLISHED PROGRAM We currently conduct more than 50 Certified Coder Boot Camp Original Version courses each year. 68% With all other factors being equal, 68% of employers reported that they would choose a credentialed candidate over one who is not, and 53% preferred credentials when promoting their employees, the report found. ACCORDING TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, JOB PROSPECTS FOR TECHNICIANS WITH A SOLID BACKGROUND IN MEDICAL CODING WILL BE PARTICULARLY STRONG IN COMING YEARS. DEMAND WILL CONTINUE TO GROW FASTER THAN AVERAGE PROFESSIONS UNTIL 2014.
