CareerStep Referral Program Basics

Note: This post reviews the basics of the CareerStep Referral Program. If you are not a CareerStep student but would like to participate, please visit to create an account.

The CareerStep Referral Program offers you the opportunity to quickly and easily be financially rewarded for telling others about CareerStep. We have a set payout structure, and we send out electronic payments once a month in the month following the sale—for example, you’ll receive payment in March for any referred sign ups that happen in February. (For more information on our payout process, read our Referral Payouts: FAQs post.) The standard payout structure is as follows:

  • $100 per enrollment for 1-2 enrollments a month
  • $200 per enrollment for 3-4 enrollments a month
  • $250 per enrollment for 5+ enrollments a month

When you signed up for the Referral Program (or when you sign for CareerStep training), you received an email with your specific referrer information. If you’ve misplaced this email or are unsure of your Referrer ID, email us at and we would be happy to look it up for you.

The best way to ensure you get credit for your referrals is to have your contacts visit your unique referrer webpage. When your contacts request more CareerStep information from this page, they’ll be marked with your Referrer ID in our system, and when they sign up, you’ll receive credit for them.

The CareerStep Referral Program applies to any of the CareerStep vocational programs. If your referrals signs up for the Medical Transcription Editor Supplement program, EKG Technician, Phlebotomy Technician, RHDS Exam Preparation program, or any of the Microsoft Office courses, you will not be eligible for a referral bonus. For full details on what programs qualify for the bonus please see the Referral Program Terms & Conditions.

    I am a medical transcriptionist graduated from a certified program Oct 2007. Worked two years in a Drs office for endocrinology. Haven’t worked since 2011. Disabled. Am currently looking for employment with MModal as a documentation editor.( Also have previous nursing experience 1987-1998.) what is the medical transcription editor supplement program. What is the cost and how long is the course?

      Hi Sheri! Most of our courses can take 4 months to complete, but we give you access for a full year. If you have a specific course in mind, give us a call at 800-411-7073 and we can answer your questions!

    Called interested in Medical coding and billing almost a year ago, as put in the MTE program, asked to switch a few times was told to “stick it out” I still hate it and am having a hard time finishing, have tried to talk to someone on the phone several times, and always get told “well sorry.”
    Really unhappy that I now owe 3k for a program I never even wanted to take, but was basically stuck in and having a really hard time getting through, even though I’d asked to be switched well within the grace period several times.

      • Samantha Murphy says:

        Same for me just now. I put in an email request. It has been 3 days since the service ticket was issued. This is most recent! I felt I was talked into doing the MTE, but I am not happy paying 3K and not being able to get through all the practicum. I feel that off line, people can switch degree programs. Career Step could accommodate within reasonable prices. I paid almost 3K for MTE and I want to switch to Executive and Administrative Assisting as to better value for learning and getting a job. MTE is very saturated. I do agree that it is what we make of it, but saying there is great opportunity with MTE is a lie. Very saturated. There is better chances with Executive and Administrative Assisting. I believe they wanted to sell the most expensive. I would like to get this switch also. I already paid 200 extra for an extention and I am also within the grace period and still haven’t heard back from my ticket request. This switch would be fair. P.S. I’m doing pretty well, but would like a switch to Executive and Administrative Assisting with no problems.

    My name is Janelle Wayman and I am disabled. I have been given a few opportunities and failed. I was broken when I went to Workforce and they gave me a wonderful opportunity that I had to take. I went through a list of different careers on that they had available. In that list, I saw Medical Billing & Coding. I saw that I could take an online class with Career Step that looked great to me. What an amazing opportunity, so I took it! My Counselor, Erin Jones, and Jared Keo a sales instructor at the school, help set it up. I received a brand new Toshiba Laptop with Windows 10 operating system. It included a $100 visa gift card along with the school.

    My day starts with getting up, making my coffee, watching the morning news, eating breakfast, bushing my teeth, making my bed, and then I go into my office, check my email, look at Facebook. I start school after all that.

    The classes are sometimes fun and sometimes hard, but nothing in this world comes easy that’s worth working for–that’s what my mother always tells me. First of all, there are a lot of tests. The one thing I like most about these tests is you only need to get half the answers right. After you take a test, the answer you got wrong will show up in red with the correct answer. I write it down, and then I take the test again and get a score of 85 or more to pass. There’s also Service Support where you can call in and get help with your studies from a live person.The courses have taught me about Medicare and Medicare fraud, auditing in a medical environment, and reimbursement methodologies where I learned the structure of forms. I also have learned medical terminology, anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology. The coding and billing were hard. I had to code medical diagnosis and procedures and understand what they meant. The course is hard and the tests are long. They have to be hard, if I’m going to pass the final exam, which will prepare me for the certification test.

    After I pass the certification test I will be able to make the money that will put me in a fine job and a lasting career.

    I appreciate all that Career Step’s, and Workforce and has done to help me.

    Thank you,

    I’m currently still in my billing and coding program which has taken me a little longer than expected but it will all be worth it once I have finished. I will have more education and a higher paying career to begin

    I recently went through Career Step and finally completed the course. I feel so empowered, but now have to find a area where I can utilize the EKG Monitor since they occasionally hire for the course where I live.
    The course work was easy and understandable and I found it useful to do some additional research in addition to the course work to further clarify and get the most of the information given in Career Step.

    I am excited to begin my learning.
