3D Printed Science and Math: Visualizations and Experiments

$195

with Network Learning Resources, Bangor Adult & Community Education

Calendar Oct 1, 2018

A 3D printer can be used to teach science and math in two ways: when a teacher creates an accurate 3D model of a concept for students to handle, or to design a “starter set” model that students can then alter and use as the basis for explorations. The instructors will impart ideas for developing appropriate content of concepts ranging from kindergarten to grad school and will teach participants to use the free and open source 3D modeling program OpenSCAD. The class assumes participants already know the basics of using a 3D printer, from the UGotClass “Introduction to 3D Printing” or equivalent experience. Recommended optional e-book: Horvath and Cameron, 3D Printed Science Projects (Apress, 2016).

To enroll in enrichment classes, particpants must be at least 18 years old and not enrolled in school.

Academy of Medical Professions: Medical Transcription

$2,400

with Academy of Medical Professions, Region 9 Adult Education

Calendar Oct 16, 2018

Medical Transcription is the process of turning dictated medical information into typed records through the use of various types of equipment, such as micro-cassette recorders, Wav files, telephone systems and C-phones.

 

As a Medical Transcriptionist, you are responsible for receiving verbal information and typing that information into a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word or Word Perfect.  This information must be transcribed accurately, using the format specified by the provider (SOAP notes, discharge summaries, and other report forms)

 

Basic computer knowledge is a must, as are basic typing skills and knowledge of commonly used word processing programs.  Most doctors or transcription companies ask for a minimum of 60 WPM.  Also, many companies now use the Internet, which gives you the opportunity to work out of your home without having to drop off and pick up tapes.

 

Our program now offers you the opportunity to learn how to use the internet and transcribe files through voice files, using FTP and Byte scribe/Express Scribe and foot pedals that connect to your computer.  Our objective is to make sure you understand all the types of equipment that are out there for transcribing across the country.  Our course is State Licensed, Insured and bonded and all instructors are at-home medical transcriptionists that will be sure to show you all the tricks of the trade that we personally use.  We provide you with a list of job openings while going through the course and will keep in contact after graduation to make sure you are following through with the directions that were given in class regarding finding jobs and where to send your resume.  Our website has a message board and job openings will be posted for your convenience, as well as a convenient way to ask questions as you are going through the program.

Academy of Medical Professions: Medical Coding

$3,500

with Academy of Medical Professions, Region 9 Adult Education

Calendar Oct 18, 2018

As a Medical Biller/Coder you are responsible for reviewing the documentation the physicians have provided and assigning the correct diagnosis and procedure codes, entering the necessary information into the patient’s account and submitting the claims to the Insurance Companies.  You are then responsible for tracking and receiving payment from the Insurance Companies and billing the patient when necessary.  You will also be responsible for reviewing any denials and researching to make sure that the claim was submitted correctly the first time.  If any necessary changes can be made, you are responsible for making the changes and following up with the Insurance Companies.

 

Basic computer knowledge is a must.  Many offices use the Internet and are willing to provide you with their billing programs to install on your home computer allowing you to work from home.

 

Medical Billers and Coders are in high demand.  Most offices and hospitals find it very difficult to find Medical Billers and Coders and when they do, are willing to provide great pay and benefits.  If you chose to work in the office or hospital, flexible schedules are also possible and they tend to be very accommodating.

 

As well as working in physician’s offices and hospitals, you can choose to work for Medical Billing Companies, Ambulance Companies and Nursing Homes.

 

 

All courses offered either locally at Adult Education Centers, and/or Online Live or through Recorded Classes lectures to be taken at the students own pace and time.
