Those who attended the original webinar are enrolled in the course and marked as passing the course. The NCCAOM Certificates were sent to attendees of the original webinar on June 13, 2021 by email if they were present at the entire webinar. There is no plan at this time to turn this live webinar into a course for PDA. 


The live webinar was held from 10AM to 6PM, both Saturday and Sunday, 8 hours per day with an hour’s worth of breaks, 7 PDA per day, a total of 14 PDA. Attendees must be present all of both days to receive the PDA/CEU credit.

This two-day seminar contains BRAND NEW, MARYLAND SPECIFIC INFORMATION, so these will be essential for best billing practices, even if you have already taken a billing class, or a class with Mori!

About Recording: This live Zoom webinar will be recorded, and available to registrants from Mori West’s website for 60 days following the webinar at no additional cost. By registering for this event you indicate that you give consent to be recorded.

About NCCAOM PDA: 14 NCCAOM PDA are available for this class. Due to changes in NCCAOM policy, partial PDA CANNOT be given; in other words, you must attend both days to receive PDA.
