The program is divided into five parts with each part accompanied by an exam. After completing the program, attendees will receive a certification that they are a Certified CMS Professional (CCMSP).  Part I of the series will introduce the CMS Hospital CoP manual, discuss major changes in 2018, the CMS survey process, board and CEO, and medical records.
