Assoiate Certification

I wonder if BC Advantage could do an article on Associate Certification. Both the AAPC and AHIMA have this certification for coders who graduated from a school that does not have accreditation with AHIMA. Every job ad wants someone with a CCS or higher and experience. I would love to get some experience in the field. After one year as a CCA the certification drops the associate and turn into CCS. Are employers informed of this certification? Has the word gotten out? Please help.
