Hi. I am currently a Career Step student in the MTE (medical transcription editing) course. You can take all the transcription part on your Mac (as I am doing now) but when you get to the editing part of the course you can only take that part on a windows pc because the editing software only works on windows. I hope that helps in your decision. I love the Career Step Course. If you do sign up with them I would appreciate it if you would give my name as a referral, it is Laurie Russell. Thanks and best of luck to you.

Hi Billie.
Can you tell me if after completing course thru CS, most employers will require certain amt. of experience before being considered for employmen? If so, how is experience suppose to be obtained just coming out of training or does the course completion along with successfully mastering national certifacion suffice for experience?

Hi nik-nik,

The truth is, it can be difficult to get your foot in the door, but with the change-over to the ICD-10 code set employers are hiring more than ever. You may need to start smaller to get your foot in the door, like at a smaller medical practice where they might be looking for a biller/coder.
Career Step's Medical Billing and Coding with applied PCS program is ideal because you learn medical billing and coding together. Their program includes CPT and PCS code sets which will prepare you to work in a variety of inpatient and outpatient setting so that you can cast a wider net in your job search.

Their comprehensive program also provides over 120 hours of practicum so you will be thoroughly prepared for the certification exams.
