"Thanks to the AAPC material and AAPC instructors that I encountered at Drexel University, I was able to pass my CPC exam on the first try. The classes were in depth, and covered the material very well. The instructors were very knowledgeable and guided me through the material with ease. Thank you again for helping me accomplish a hard earned goal! I am looking forward to my next credentialing exam with confidence."

– Bradford H. Thomas, CPC-A
