AHIMA’s Certified Coding Specialist (CCS) credential demonstrates a practitioner’s mastery of coding proficiency. While increasing numbers of employers now require CCS credentials for their coding staff, the CCS examination is known to be difficult and we want to prepare you to be successful in passing the exam. The course does not teach you how to code, but rather provides a thorough review of the materials covered by the exam coupled with proven test-taking strategies
