Are you ready to take the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam? If so, you’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll provide a comprehensive guide on how to register for the CPC exam.
Understanding the CPC Exam
Before diving into the registration process, let’s take a moment to review the CPC exam. The CPC exam is a comprehensive, computer-based test designed to measure your knowledge and coding proficiency. It covers a wide range of topics, including anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, medical coding, reimbursement methodologies, and regulatory guidelines.
The CPC exam is offered year-round, and you can take it at any accredited testing center. You must pass the exam in order to become a certified professional coder.
Choosing a Test Date
Once you’ve decided to take the CPC exam, the next step is to choose a test date. When selecting a date, it’s important to consider your study schedule, as well as the testing center’s availability.
Most testing centers offer the CPC exam on a first-come, first-served basis. As such, it’s important to register as soon as possible to ensure you get the date you want.
Creating a Pearson VUE Account
Before you can register for the exam, you’ll need to create a Pearson VUE account. Pearson VUE is the organization that administers the CPC exam. To create an account, simply visit the Pearson VUE website and follow the on-screen instructions.
Once you’ve created an account, you’ll be able to log in and begin the registration process.
Paying for the Exam
The CPC exam costs $399. When registering, you’ll need to provide your payment information and choose a payment method. You can pay with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal.
Scheduling an Appointment
Once you’ve paid for the exam, you’ll need to schedule your appointment. To do so, log back into your Pearson VUE account and select a testing center and date. You’ll also need to provide your personal information, such as your name, address, and phone number.
Preparing for the Exam
Now that you’ve registered for the exam, it’s time to start preparing. There are several ways to prepare, including taking practice tests, attending review workshops, and studying online.
Additionally, you may want to consider investing in a study guide or review course. These resources can provide valuable insight into the exam and help you better understand the material.
