How Online Coding Courses Can Literally Save Your Life

Advancing in your career is a noble goal, but many never try for fear that they will not only fail, but make everything worse.

Imagine the following scenario: you sign up for medical billing and coding courses, hoping to take advantage of the high wages and job growth in that field. Because you have few savings, you must continue working, leaving you no time to sleep. Lack of sleep makes you careless, leading you to drive recklessly, lose control of your car, and die in a fiery explosion. This scenario is horrific, and even less extreme risks may be enough to deter you from going to coding school. This need not stop you, however, from trying to advance in your career. Online coding courses allow you to train as a billing and coding specialist without ever setting foot in a classroom. This will preserve your life, health, and sanity by:  

Saving Your Time

Online coding courses let you study at your own pace. If you have an easier time than the average student understanding the lessons, you can speed through them. Online coding courses also reduce the indirect time constraints of getting an education. Whereas attending a physical classroom requires you to drive to the school, park, and wait for the instructor, you can take online lessons from anywhere in the world that has WiFi. Online classes thus guarantee that you will have more time to spend sleeping, eating, and generally taking care of yourself.  

Lowering Your Costs

Tuition is often lower for online courses than it is for courses that you take in a classroom, but even when it isn’t, it saves you from a wide range of indirect costs. Whereas you’ll have to regularly pay for gas, parking, metro tickets, and/or bus passes to get to a physical classroom, as long as you have WiFi in your home, you won’t have to go anywhere to take online classes. Likewise, if you have children, you can watch over them while taking your classes, saving you the cost of daycare. The more money you save, the more you can spend on healthy food, health insurance, and other things that could save your life.  

Giving You More Energy

Being a student is a physical activity, and often a draining one. It’s not enough to simply go to class and listen to the instructor. You have to sit upright, appear engaged, and take an active part in the discussion. If you don’t look engaged, the instructor will assume you aren’t learning, making you less likely to pass regardless of how much you’ve actually learned. These requirements are draining, and over time, they may render you exhausted, preventing you from making good decisions in other parts of your life. With online coding courses, however, you can participate in whatever way is most effective for your learning style and level of energy.

If you prefer to lay back on the couch while going through your modules, you are free to do so.   Alright, we admit it: the scenario we mentioned at the beginning was incredibly far-fetched. There are plenty of adults who juggle work, childcare, and in-classroom education without ever dying in a fiery explosion. Nonetheless, the benefits of studying online are real, and you should take them into account before you begin your training as a medical coding specialist.

Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
