 Add to Calendar



Select Chapters of Region 2 and Region 3 will be hosting a FREE web-based presentation 

The revised Certification test is now divided into two Modules. 

  • Module I walks you through the key concepts and helps you develop an understanding of the pieces that make up the healthcare industry.  It is available online only and is a six chapter study guide followed by the Module I test. 
  • Module II takes the skills learned in Module I and tests you with a series of case studies.  Module II is only available once you pass Module I and you must be a member in good standing. 

These webinars will provide an overview of each of the chapters covered in the Module I study guide.  The cost of the sessions are free, but if you need the study guide, that is available at a group discount of $320 (see the attached page to order).  Module II is only available once you pass Module I and is not available for a group discount.  The cost of those materials is $300.

The March 8th session will cover chapters 1, 5 and 6
The March 22nd session will cover chapters 2,3 and 4
