TIP Number ONE-Training
Ask the Teaching Institute if they offer training for the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) Exams, which National Career Skills Institute does provide. There are many benefits from achieving the CBCS distinction. The following is from the NHA website https://www.nhanow.com/certifications/billing-coding.
Individuals with a CBCS certification from NHA gain access to the knowledge and training they need to prepare for a rewarding and meaningful career as a sought-after Billing & Coding Specialist.
As a CBCS, you may perform some or all of the following tasks:
TIP Number Two - On-site or Distance Learning Options
Ask the school if they offer the classes on-site or via distance learning. On-site courses offer benefits such as access to school library, classmate interaction and a quiet study hall. Distance learning provides several unique opportunities. Whether you live in rural Nevada or on the East Coast or in another country, you are able to enroll in a HCBC program. If your work schedule prevents you from taking on-site classes, the Distant Learning option allows you to study at any hour. NCSI’s HCBC Distant Learning Program is the same curriculum as our on-site courses and you have the ability to get instructor assistance anytime via phone, text, or email.
TIP Number Three - On Site Testing
Ask the school if they offer the ability to take the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (CBCS) Exams conveniently ON-SITE. National Career Skills Institute (NCSI) is a certified NHA test site for graduating students.
TIP Number Four – 100% Student Passing Rate
It makes sense to inquire if the students taking the NHA exam actually achieve passing scores. People do not want to spend time and money to fail the test. Many schools offer training, but few of their graduates achieve the national certification. The best advice is to “go with the winner”. National Career Skills Institute has the outstanding achievement record. 100% of the graduates from the NCSI HCBC Program pass the NHA exams!!!! The secret is an outstanding instructor, curriculum that is current and up to date, and a school known for challenging and motivating students.
