Rating One Day E&M Auditing Training
Another first class training by NAMAS. I have taken E&M classes from a number of different organizations, but not one comes close to the well presented, not-watered-down instruction by NAMAS. Both experienced and new auditors will take away more from this one day class than a week long course offered by others.

I must say this was one of the best bootcamps I have attended. Shannon is personable and open to others opinions. Her ability to engage the group was exceptional. I came away with a lot of information and new "nuggets" for auditing. Thank you, NAMAS group, for always being responsive and available. I highly recommend your organization to anyone in the healthcare coding and auditing industry.

The bootcamp was even better than I hoped it would be. I have audited E/M for quite some time and felt I had a pretty good grasp of the subject. Within the first 5 minutes, I learned something new. The whole day was filled with insights as well as answers to complex questions that have puzzled me for years. Thank you for a most enjoyable education experience

After attending the NAMAS bootcamp and utilizing the study guide, I passed my CPMA. I couldn't have done it without NAMAS' support and educational resources. Thanks again!

I learned so much in one day and while it was a lot of information the way Shannon reviewed it I didn't feel like I went home on information overload. I look forward to future teachings from NAMAS

Shannon O. DeConda provided an excellent all day training program related to E/M Medical Auditing. She clearly has an estensive working knowledge of this topic and was able to cover a large amount of information in one day. Shannon held the interest of both novice and seasoned auditors. I will recommend this class to others.

Shannon is a great presenter and teacher. She covered all material in an easy to follow and understandable manner. I appreciated the examples and exercises she provided. The manual and the electronic grid will be a very useful resource. I hope she will provide additional trainings through AMA.
