I am currently looking for a coding class here in southern california. I found 2 so far. I wonder has anyone heard of THE CODING SOURCE OR THE SMART SOLUTIONS?

If you are looking for an online course I have taken a coding class through the VLC.  All work and testing can be done online and they send you a certificate once the course is completed.  As well as you may want to check into Allied Business Schools.  I believe they offer coding also.  I am currently taking their transcription course as well and it can be done online also.  Hope this helps.

Where exactly in southern california? The American Academy of coders has the independent study program you can do from home and they have different chapters depending what area you are in that might have a program within. I am in the Inland Empire and can give you information if you are near by.

Hi Grace, I live in Long bEach area. There's one more institute I found the REIMBURSEMENT SPECIALISTS, they are under the AAPC local chapter. I'm still having second is I am employed doing billing which I only took from a vocational program; its almost a year now since I got employed. I'm thinking which one to take first (the coding to help me code more efficiently) or billing certification and learn more in-depth abt it. What we learned from school wasn't really useful. I learned hands-on basically when I started this billing job.
Sorry for the long reply.

AHIMA also has a home coding course that you can take. Also you can take AAPC course from home and received your CPC or CPC-H.  If you're are dedicated and can study from home this is a great opportunity
