1.Strengths of the course: Instructor was very knowledgeable and able to provide examples from his own personal experience. Training materials is a very good reference for future use.
Testimonial: When I signed up for four days of HIPAA training I was prepared for a very boring experience. I have to admit that after the first couple of hours I realized that I actually enjoyed the class. Our instructor, Ross Leo, was very well prepare and knowledgeable of the subject. I was previously unfamiliar with the details regarding HIPAA and HITECH regulations and now I feel confident and prepared to lead the HIPAA implementation project in CSC and be HIPAA Security Officer. I would highly recommend this course to other to ensure a good understanding of HIPAA requirements.

2.I have just completed the HIPAA Privacy and Security online anytime training and want to share my experience. The flexibility of this training was invaluable as I had a family emergency just as I started, but was able to continue the course while I was out of town. The accompanying lecture with the PowerPoint slides differentiates this online course from others. The HIPAA expert expounds on the slides in a conversational tone and shares his extensive knowledge and experience without falling into legalese. The accompanying course book and files make this an extremely thorough learning experience, while also serving as valuable reference material for the near future. The course also allows for asking questions and these were answered fully and promptly. HIPAA permeates the health care industry; any individual, regardless of his/her role, will
undoubtedly benefit from taking one of HIPAAtraining.net’s courses and the subsequent knowledge will be a necessary asset to any healthcare organization.
3.I highly recommend this training to every HIPAA professional. The Supremus Group, through outstanding instruction, helped me to prepare for the certification exams as well as understand the policies, procedures, risk analysis, and audit processes required of my organization. Due to this training, by the Supremus Group, I am confident that my organization will be able to be actively compliant with all of the HIPAA and ARRA rules and regulations. I have a much better understanding of how to train the staff for continual compliance in adhering to the Privacy and Security Rules. Thank you Supremus Group for meeting my needs, answering all of my questions, and preparing me for the certification exams. I couldn’t have done without you!” – Julie Ouzts HIPAA Compliance Officer.

4.The HIPAA Privacy and Security training instructor used humor, concrete workplace examples to simplify the intricacies of the HIPAA laws. The mixture of participants made the training atmosphere relaxing instead of intimidating. Participants were able to expose their knowledge base, or lack thereof without being judged.

5.HIPAA Training and Certification is essential for any business associate that is setting up a HIPAA compliance program. In addition to thorough courseware, HIPAAtraining.net provide template for policies; contracts and procedures to build your program.

Even with this experience, we often leveraged the materials supplied with the course for our program.
The instructor was very thorough and prepared. He brought a lot of added content to the course. Instructor is an infosec professional and his stories and application were very helpful. The instructor kept the training on schedule and was sure to blend practical experience with the HIPAA standards.

8.The course content was comprehensive and extremely informative. It was more informative than what I expected for an “on-line course”, and having an actual lecturer speak the slides in the presentation, gave me an opportunity to retain more of the information.
I just wish the test wasn’t so hard!! 🙂
9.The instructor lead training that I received from hipaatraining.net is the most in depth training that I have ever received.

10.My instructor for the classroom sessions was very knowledgeable about all aspects of HIPAA Privacy and Security and was able to provide extremely detailed coverage of the course materials. He took the time to provide relevant examples and to discuss the course content as it related specifically to our business. In addition, the course manual, resource CD and test preparation software provided a comprehensive approach to exam preparation and will continue to be useful resources back on the job.
11.I wanted to take a few minutes and thank you for the quality product from the Supremus Group. I had recently checked with some friends in the healthcare industry about HIPAA certifications and they pointed me to your website http://www.hipaatraining.net.
After spending some time on the website, I decided to purchase the Online Anytime Training and associated manual for the Certified HIPAA Security Expert program (CHSE). Well, I have to admit that I was a bit anxious going forward with this computer based training, but as soon as I received it I was pleasantly surprised!
The online training is broken into real-world modules and chapters that parallel exactly what is being taught in the book. By using the combination of the two, I was able to pass my CHSE test on the very first attempt.
I strongly recommend this course material to anyone who wants to prepare for the certification and wants to enhance their knowledge in the area of HIPAA security. I feel that I am now able to better contribute to corporate security policies, access control systems, and many documented procedures i a more-comprehensive manner after my training.
Thank You Bob and Supremus!!

15.The instructor used real examples with student questions to illustrate HIPAA breaches versus just bad business practices or versus violations of someother privacy statute. He was obviously knowledgeable and experienced in the subject. I trust his answers, believe his answers to be backed by the statute, and have relayed that trust to the operational chain of command at my company. I have resolved three common and recurring issues in our company with this training session.
16.I feel the instructor was very knowledgeable and had vast experiences to relate to our questions. He didn’t just provide the answer; he challenged us to think about how to look at our specific situation and how to implement the standards.

The course allowed me to become very well equipped to serve in the capacity of the privacy and security officer role to protect our PHI and ensure our compliance with HIPAA regulations.

I would recommend this class and Instructor to anyone needing HIPAA training. Although the website used to deliver the training experienced some glitches one day, we worked through the minor annoyance. The benefits of the one-on-one training greatly outweighed the glitches and would recommend it.
19.Strengths of the course:
Instructor was able to provide examples from his own personal experience having worked in such positions requiring HIPAA Security and offer helpful tips. Also, the training materials will be good reference materials as well.
I was searching for a HIPAA training course that would give me the basics for HIPAA Administration and Security to enable to implement such a program at my organization.

21.The instructor was very accommodating in our training session. I had several situation-specific questions that required some research on his part. He did this research and was able to answer my questions. He allowed me to interrupt the training module with thoughts and questions and did not get irritated. He constantly sought feedback to ensure that he was moving at a pace that I was comfortable with and that I understood what we were reviewing.

22.Strengths of the course: Provided background on the topic as well as outlined how HIPAA/privacy/security affects our company. Also the instructor made the topic, with its unfamiliar terminology, easy to follow and understand.
I found this course to be extremely valuable, as I was previously unfamiliar with the details regarding HIPAA regulations and now feel confident in discussing HIPAA and how the rules apply to our organization (as well as others). The onsite training instructor provided was geared toward our operations, which was more helpful than providing hypothetical examples. He is also very knowledgeable on the topic and provided valuable resources that we are able to reference now that the class has concluded. I would recommend this course to other organizations.

26.The training provided by Chris Apgar was thorough, and tailored to our company’s needs. Chris was willing to respond to questions about specific client situations and provide the legal reasoning behind his assessment. He also brought the legislation “to life” through examples of real companies and their challenges. The sessions provided by Chris were interactive and engaging, far more than anyone expected.

27.We have several clients who are either HIPAA covered or are a hybrid of HIPAA and non-HIPAA covered entities. I thought the presentation stimulated very useful internal discussion.
