It depends on how complicated the encounters are. I work in a pediatrics office and most of the coding is straight forward. I can easily code 50 encounters in an hour on average. Being new you can count on less. If I were doing that job and the encounters were simple I could make around 37.50 an hour and it would be worthwile for me financially.
Now for you and experience... in my opinion it couldn't hurt. If you have the extra time to give to it then you would gain experience. Any additional training you receive is a bonus and you would get paid for it. With time and experience it could turn out to be lucrative... the more experience you get the faster you can code.
Just my opinion... good luck!
