Testimonial from Dee Ann H.  Graduate and passed CPC exam – Oct 2017

Dee Ann H. “I did my research and found the very best Medical Billing and Coding school! The courses I have taken at Career Coders have given me the confidence that I needed to pursue my passions and achieve my goals.”

“I especially appreciated Melody's accessibility. If I called her with a question, she invariably got back to me within the hour. She never made me feel like I was an intrusion. I have a great deal for which to be thankful. I owe my hopeful future to the excellent training I got from Melody!”  Dee Ann H., CPC

Testimonial from Julie A.

Julie A.“When choosing my coding program two years ago, I knew that I did not want to be just a number or taught by an instructor that knew nothing about me. I was so lucky to have found Career Coders and Mel Irvine.”

“Mel’s curriculum is so well put together and easy to follow that it quickly sparked a passion for coding in me. I felt confident and well prepared to take my CPC exam and have carried that knowledge and confidence with me into my coding career. As an instructor she is dedicated to her students and has great pride in student achievements.”

“She has continued to be a support to me and one of my biggest cheerleaders. Not only will you get a top-notch education with Mel, but a wonderful mentor through-out your career.”  Julie A., CPC

Testimonial from Mary M.

Julie A.“As it became apparent that I needed a career change, I was recommended to Career Coders classes through the Work Force. They spoke very highly of her program and experience. I telephoned her with trepidation about whether I could really do this and after listening carefully to my story, she assured me I could.

Her courses are excellent, her teaching interesting and personal, and her encouragement invaluable as I moved into my new career, which, by the way, I love! My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! I was well prepared for my CPC exam and passed on my first attempt in April 2016, while already working as an Ophthalmology Coder.

I've found the job opportunities to be abundant in this fast-growing industry. Mel was there for me every step of the way, and continues to be a professional resource and mentor.”  Mary M., CPC
