So I have a question on I guess state level guidelines. I live RIGHT on the border between GA and SC and am going into Sec 5 of Mod 3. The next close-ish option is in Feb in SC or I'd have to drive like 3-4 hours to stay in GA to take it or wait until after Feb. Are the certifications National or do they work for your state only? 

Thanks so much!

An excellent question, Shannon!  AAPC and AHIMA both are national organizations, as are their credential exams.  It doesn't matter which state you live and/or take your exam in, your certification will be good everywhere in the country!
