“I used your practice exam bundle and passed the first time! I also recommended this to others preparing for the test in our organization. They ordered and felt it was of great value.  I especially appreciated the explanation for the answers which helped me learn a lot. When I took the test I was able to complete it in 3 1/2 hours with a score of 89%.”

“I just wanted to let you know that I took my CPC test last week. I just got the results on AAPC and I am now certified. I passed!!!!!! the first time. I was so scared. Your tests were very much in line with the exam and helped me a lot. It was worth the money!”

“I purchased the “double practice exam and strategy” bundle yesterday. So glad you have this available for such a good price. I’ve been working on the first exam (after having read the strategy tips) and can’t believe how this is helping. I’m learning a ton about coding and your strategy tips are going to be “key” for me passing the CPC exam. Wish me luck, and a great big THANKS to you for making this available.”

The CCA credential distinguishes coders by exhibiting commitment and demonstrating coding competencies across all settings, including both hospitals and physician practices. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a shortage of more than 50,000 qualified HIM and HIT workers by 2015. Becoming a CCA positions you as a leader in an exciting and growing market. CCAs:

  • Exhibit a level of commitment, competency, and professional capability that employers are looking for
  • Demonstrate a commitment to the coding profession
  • Distinguish themselves from non-credentialed coders and those holding credentials from organizations less demanding of the higher level of expertise required to earn AHIMA certification
