VIRTUAL CREDENTIALING SPECIALIST (CPCS®) CERTIFICATION PREPARATION COURSE

The NAMSS Credentialing Specialist Certification Preparation Workshop is a 2-4 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.
