BUYER BEWARE

If another company you're considering is offering a course for less than 80 hrs (or 40 hrs for the EMR upgrade/40 hrs for the EMR recert), you are exposing yourself to a huge risk. When that company is audited and is found to not be meeting standards for course lengths and/or skills, all of the certifications they gave out can become invalidated. Which means the shortcut they offer now may cost you in the end if your certification is revoked.
