Please note that registration for this Live Workshop has closed for the Fall 2020 session. More information to come regarding 2021 sessions!

The newly-redesigned NAMSS Credentialing Specialist Certification Preparation Workshop is a four-week interactive program designed to help you assess your knowledge of the CPCS exam content and identify areas in which additional study is necessary before you take the exam. This comprehensive workshop provides a high-level overview of the exam topics including credentialing and privileging; primary source verification; compliance with standards; and medical staff services operations reviewed from the perspective of a variety of health care settings including hospitals, managed care organizations, ambulatory care settings and CVOs. 

New for 2020, participants will work through a series of online modules supplemented with four live sessions facilitated by experienced NAMSS instructors. A key focus of the course is your development of a personalized study plan for post-workshop study and preparation to take the examination. The course includes comprehensive supplementary resources to help you prepare for the exam.
