Virtual Credentialing Specialist (CPCS) Certification Preparation Course

Summer 2021 Session 

The 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. 

Participants will work through a series of online modules supplemented with four live sessions facilitated by experienced NAMSS speakers. 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.  

Registration for this course has reached capacity and is now closed. If you are interested in our next offering in the Fall, please email education@namss.org.
