I'm 50 years old and have been a medical transcriptionist (IE) for the past 17 years.  I start a coding class next month to prepare me to take the CPC certification exam.  After I become a CPC-A, how long do I need to wait to take the CPC-H exam?  In the future, I also will take the CCS (AHIMA) exam.  With my 17 years of medical transcription background, will medical coding be a smooth transition?
