I think people are not realizing that SCI is not a college or a university. It's a career study.

The information provided can help you to further your path in your career, which is why it's a study. The information is useful, no lie... but, it's not to be used as a degree. It's like if you were to take a study course at a community college.

Study course, not major. They do not hand you a degree because that's not what it is. It's a certificate that's says you completed the study. That's it.

If you want a degree you definitely have to enroll in an actually college that has online degrees available. In health care, depending on the area, you will have to go to school on campus because it calls for hands-on study.

I hope this helped someone.

YES!!! I saw someone complain their medical billing degree was useless.

That course here is just a course to help you PASS the certification tests with either AAPC or AHIMA. Those are the organizations that you get a coding/billing CERTIFICATION from. AAPC or AHIMA also offer their own courses that are online and take about 4 months to complete, but are about 3 times as expensive ($3,000-$4,000). There are no prerequisites for testing for medical billing or coding and getting your certification needed to work.

Lots of people make that mistake and ALL the trade schools (online and actual campuses), offer a COURSE. NONE of those are necessary to take the test. Anyone can take the test - zero prerequisites. However, in order to pass, you would need to know the materials and this is all this school claims to offer.

I'm taking this course (I already work at a huge hospital in compliance/auditing/ and a tiny bit of coding), but don't know enough to pass my AHIMA or AAPC tests (THOSE are the only two tests that certify you!!) EVERYONE, regardless of school, has to pass one of those. So this class is actually a very cheap option to get there. Schools like Antonelli and Phoenix offer these medical/billing "certifications" also and they can be $10,000 plus - and you STILL have to take the AAPC or AHIMA test (those are ALL that matters). Employers don't care where you learned the info.

You just have to take test and have a cert from AAPC or AHIMA, so you got lucky with this one if you didn't know what was going on!!

I'm seeing so many bad reviews, and I hate people are out of that$, but people have to know that $1,000 is TOO CHEAP for an ACTUAL DEGREE!! Come on people.
