Prepare for Your Case Management Certification?

Preparation is the Difference Between Failure and Success

You already know that preparation is the difference between failure and success when it comes to passing the case manager certification examination. The right case management review course can make all the difference. However, finding the right review course can be difficult. You want a course that has a proven track record, that is taught by experts in the field, and is convenient to attend.

Finding one that fits your needs, your family’s schedule, is not hundreds of miles away and will not require you to take your vacation days is a challenge. You start adding the cost of transportation, meals, and lodging while away in addition to the cost of the course. You quickly realize this is going to be a major investment of both your time and money. There’s got to be a better way!

We Make Attending a Case Management

Certification Review Course Easier Than Ever

Cost and Logistics of Attending a Live Course Are Prohibitive

We understand that the cost and logistics of attending a live course are prohibitive to most people. It can easily cost well over $1000 in course, transportation and lodging costs. Not to mention the hassle of getting time off work and coordinating the time away with the family calendar.

We also understand that cramming in hours of lecture a day can lead to information overload. That is why our course is provided online and at your own pace. You can attend at a time and place convenient to you. You can listen as long as you want, and break when you need to. When you’re ready to come back; whether a few minutes, days or weeks later, your course will be waiting for you. You can also attend the course as many times as you wish at no additional charge.

To meet the needs of case managers preparing for case management certification, I have developed a number of resources. The first resource was the test prep book, CCM Certification Made Easy. This book has been an important resource over a thousand case managers have purchased and has allowed them to prepare for and successfully pass the Case Management Certification Exam.

Now we are rolling out a new online course, Case Management Certification Review Course,  The course is presented by Anne Llewellyn, RN-BC, MS, BHSA, CCM, CRRN, case management leader, who shares her expertise and experiences with you in her 11 module course on case management. You are now able to access the same course she has taught numerous times to live audiences, in the convenience and comfort of your own home.

This program is designed to:

  • Provide a study guide for those preparing for national certification in the field of case management
  • Share insights into the practice of case management for those new to the field
  • Share a common platform to better understand the role, function and opportunities case managers bring to the healthcare system
  • Provide information that will improve individual and organizational practice

After completing this course you’ll have an understanding of the important role case managers play in today’s complex healthcare system and how this information is vital to preparing for and passing a national case management certification exam. Through listening to the modules, you will know where to focus your additional studies and be able to develop your own personalized study plan.

This course is the perfect complement to the book CCM Certification Made Easy: Your Guide to Passing the Certified Case Manager Exam.
