Your success as a CPCO is dependent on your ability to prioritize the information presented to you and organize it in ways that allow you to problem-solve efficiently. The following preparation tips will help ensure that you’re fully prepared.
The surest way to prepare for the CPCO exam is to train with AAPC by enrolling in a CPCO preparation course. Designed by the creators of the exam, these courses will ensure you receive an effective and comprehensive education covering proper use of all topics you’ll encounter on the exam. The course teaches the key requirements needed to effectively develop, implement, and monitor a healthcare compliance program for your practice based on governmental regulatory guidelines — including internal compliance reviews, audits, risk assessments, and staff education and training.
Diagnose your strengths and weaknesses. We highly recommend that you take one of the 50-question online practice exams to help you become familiar with the format and time constraints of the real test. Our practice tests accurately mirror the exam to ensure you are fully prepared on exam day.
After you take your first practice exam, you’ll realize not all areas of CPCO curriculum require equal study time. Based on your diagnostic results and practice performance, we’ll recommend lessons and exercises at just the right level. Follow these recommendations to make the most of your practice time.
Designed to help you prepare for the exam, our official CPCO Study Guide walks you through practical examples and sample questions and covers all the content sections found on the exam. The CPCO Study Guide will prepare you for the AAPC’s CPCO exam for healthcare compliance. Using an easy-to-follow outline format, the text reviews history of compliance, OIG compliance program guidance, HIPAA, EMTALA, CLIA and OSHA as well as other key enforcement laws. Best of all, it provides testing tips for taking the AAPC CPCO exam.
If you have compliance experience or have successfully completed compliance officer training, this study guide will optimize exam preparation.
