CHPA Testimonials on LinkedIn

I recently took the HIPAA CHPA certification online training course as a part of a requirement for my job. This course provided me with a great understanding of the HIPAA standard. I now understand the intent of the standard, how organizations need to ensure they attain and remain HIPAA certified, and how HIPAA will ensure the Healthcare industry can protect patients’ rights. I would recommend this course to anyone who will deal with HIPAA.
Chris Parker, Terremark Sales Executive, Healthcare, Verizon Enterprise Solutions

The content that was covered in the Certified HIPAA Privacy Associate course was spot on. I loved having the ability to pause the training to take notes, and also to rewind if I missed something. I am looking forward to taking more courses in the near future. I would highly recommend this course as an entry level and other courses as you develop.
Erica True, Privacy Compliance Specialist

The CHPA Certification Training course provided through HIPAATraining.net is a very thorough and well-organized training program. If you are looking to understand the complexity of HIPAA law and subsequent laws that deal with patient privacy and security, this is the course to take.
Lenox Powell, CO, Your Content Goes Here

Having remembered the painful experience of typical online courses, I was not necessarily ecstatic to undergo this course. However, I found that this online course through Supremus Group was actually surprisingly informative and helpful. I took on a new position at work where it will be necessary to follow HIPAA laws. Through this extensive online training, I realized how it would have been beneficial for me to have gone through this course even as a personal trainer years ago! Though the course was easy to follow, it did not sacrifice quality, pertinent information, or real world application.
Kali Knapp, Work Strong Coordinator, Irvine, CA.

This class is the most comprehensive and detailed hippa class I’ve taken. The material was presented very clearly and explained thoroughly. It was far and away better than all previous Hipaa classes I’ve taken.
Tiphanni Chamberlain, Mint Dental, Alaska

After having taken this course, I now have a better and more detailed understanding of the history, fundamentals, and importance of HIPAA, privacy, and security. I also have a fuller, more well-rounded view of what they mean for the healthcare industry. I have taken several other HIPAA courses for other work and learning environments so I have had to be in compliance with HIPAA for quite some time now. I appreciate this course and the instructor’s expertise and applicable examples on the topics covered.
Nicholas Blackstock,

For someone who has not been in the healthcare space for many years, taking your HIPAA training provided me with a great foundation in which to build upon. I also thought the class instructor was very experienced and provided the class with memorable examples.
Michael Reid, Terremark Sales Executive, Healthcare, Verizon Enterprise Solutions

As a first time HIPAA course taker, I was surprised at how detailed and full the course was. The 90 minute course of Powerpoint slides had a plethora of information regarding HIPAA and the new Omnibus Rule, I learned a great amount. I would recommend the course.
Victoria Leone, MDS Medical

Taking an online course felt really impersonal to me. I was afraid I’d miss the in-person interaction. what I found though was that the format given by the Supremus Group was incredibly interactive. It was great to learn about this course. The course was more helpful when real-life examples were given about how the policies were applied. I have even recommended my friends who are working in the Healthcare domain to the CHPA training to understand the HIPAA Basics, Security, and Privacy regulations. Apart from this, I’m thankful to Bob Mehta for helping and providing me with detailed information regarding the CHPA course and concepts.
Ravikiran Chinta, Software Test Engineer

I completed the HIPAA Privacy and Security (CHPA) online training course. The flexibility of this course is invaluable. It allowed me to learn at my own pace. It was easy to “rewind” the presentation and listen to it again if I needed clarification. The PowerPoint slides along with the audio transcript accompanied the lecture very well. The lecturer used excellent examples to simplify the HIPAA laws. I highly recommend this online training course for all medical professionals, it is an excellent value!
Jennifer Schnuck, Marquette University Medical Clinic

The course is very complete and intensive training. It opened my eyes to the complexity of the law, how it applies to me, and other sections of the industry.
Peri Gretton, BSRT InSightec, Americas Applications Manager

I recently took the online course for the HIPAA Certification. I was very pleased with the material, the outline, and the detailed information that was included in the course. The material used was updated and easy to understand. I plan on taking what I have learned from this course and sharing it with my co-workers to inform them of the many laws and regulations, updates, and changes made to the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
Cayce Nichols, Bluegrass Pain Consultants, PLLC

The format of the training course was very easy to understand. The clear cut information on each area describing in detail with supporting information made it easy to comprehend. Working in the healthcare industry I can now apply what I’ve learned because I fully understand HIPAA and can make confident decisions. This module has taught me how HIPAA has several capacities from how I write my documentation and how I protect my workstation. It also has revealed that my organization as a whole has the responsibility of holding not only myself but anyone associated with the organization accountable to HIPAA. I would definitely recommend this module to my co-workers and others to learn more about HIPAA.
Luis C Delgado

The Certified HIPAA Privacy Associate (CHPA) online certification course was of immense benefit to me as I was able to learn the HIPAA requirements with regards to confidentiality, integrity, and availability as it applies to Health Records. I particularly appreciate the sections that discuss privacy protection without hindering quality patient care and compliance issues.
John Adetunji Oyeleke

The course was helpful by giving real life examples of how the policies were applied. This was a good review of what HIPAA entails. I can truly say that I learned so much from this training.
Linda Fuentes, Accounting Tech. II, SJSU Student Health Center

By doing CHPA course I got a more accurate knowledge of HIPAA regulations, I learned about the Privacy and Security rules and how they apply to Covered Entities and the different types of Business Associates. I acquired a deeper understanding of the PHI and the rules to use and disclose it in a safe way like the Minimum Necessary and TPO disclosures. I learned about the Organizational requirements and Safeguards (Administrative, Physical, Technical) that should be implemented in order to protect PHI and to be compliant with Privacy and Security Rules, as well as how to create adequate policies and procedures, the applicable sanctions and the documentation requirements. I got a clear idea of the rights individuals to have on their own PHI such as amendments, restriction requests and the right to be informed by knowing the Notice of Privacy Practices Now I am aware that Contingency plans are part of Security rule and benefit everyone since they prevent loss of information and allow the companies to have a plan for managing emergencies. Thanks to this course I have a more clear vision of the consequences of information breaches, how to avoid them, what to do when they happen (notification), and their consequences at civil and legal levels. I really think that HIPAA training is pivotal for any company that works with Health information and for its employees since HIPAA compliance is a legal requirement. Knowledge of HIPAA is a valuable tool to perform work in a legally safe way for both the trained employee and the company and is a plus that individual has for growing professionally. Finally, I want to add in a very personal way that in the development of my job, and as I see how HIPAA rules are implemented and how topics and questionnaires in these courses are so professional and serious, I realize the very big magnitude of these politics, and by having this knowledge I have the tools to surveil and improve the compliance of my team mates, my company and myself with HIPAA rules.
