Korean Delegates visit SMCOE's - Career Technical Education Center in Burlingame

On February 18, 2014 a contingent of 30 Korean Principals visited the Career Technical Education Center in Burlingame with the intention of gaining ideas to implement in their own school programs.  SMCOE/CTE has successfully been in operation since 1967 and was chosen to be used as a model program by the principals.

Korean schools tend to concentrate on academics and would like to include technical skills in order for students to be fully prepared for careers whether they attend college or not.  CTE focuses on health careers and gives students rigorous, relevant and up to date training that prepares them for the world of work, including longevity.

Adele Berg, CTE Administrator, gave the principals a tour of the classrooms.  The principals enjoyed exchanges between the students and staff.  They found how supportive the Instructors were with the students and how the classes involve extensive soft skills training that help students not only become better employees but improve their lives.  The principals were impressed with the fact that most classes include National Certification.  The day ended with a question and answer with Ms. Berg and we hope they benefitted from that interchange.

It was a wonderful day and CTE embraced their motto “Hope for Students and Satisfaction for Business!”

Certified Insurance Billing and Coding - ICD-10-CM Seminar

The implementation of the ICD-10-CM is scheduled for October 2014 for all Medical Offices and Billing and Coding contractors.  The fall semester students had the opportunity to attend two trainings with the AAPC Palo Alto chapter where they were introduced to the new changes by way of ICD-10-CM.  As a result, our students earned Continuing Education Units for each Saturday that they attended the training.

There were two instructors who presented the new changes to our students, Susan Carson and Dori Rincon.  Coding changes that were addressed included Neoplasms, The Endocrine System, Blood Diseases and Infectious Diseases.  During the second training, the areas covered included Mental, Behavioral and Neurodevelopment Disorders; Diseases of the Nervous System; Diseases of the Eye and Adnexa; Diseases of the Ear and Mastoid process; Diseases of the Circulatory System and Respiratory System.

AAPC provided breakfast and lunch on both days and also held a raffle that furnished new ICD-10 books to the lucky winners.

News

Latest unemployment and industry jobs data

the unemployment rate in San Mateo County was 4.1 percent in May 2014, down seasonally from a revised 4.2 percent in April, and below the year-ago estimate of 5.2 percent.  This compares with an unadjusted unemployment rate of 7.3 percent for California and 5.9 percent for the nation for this April.  San Mateo County registered the second lowest unemployment rate among California's 58 countries as of May 2014.

San Mateo County had an estimated 16,500 unemployed residents as of May 2014.

The University of the Pacific Eberhardt School of Business recently released California and metro area forecasts at http://forecast.pacific.edu/CAmetro.html.  The following are highlights for the three-county San Francisco metro area:

  • They forecast the unemployment rate to decrease from 5.5 percent in 2013 to 4.8 percent in 2014, to 4.4 percent in 2015, and to 4.0 in 2016.
  • Compared to a 4.4 percent growth rate in 2013, they expect nonfarm payroll employment to grow at 2.7 percent in 2014, 2.5 percent in 2015, and 2.2 percent in 2016.

Consulting firm ATKearney released an economic impact study on California's aerospace industry.  The report found that in 2012, aerospace and related companies in the state accounted for nearly $62 billion in revenue, with a 21.0 percent share of the nation's aerospace market and 9.0 percent of the global market.  Directly or indirectly representing 510,000 jobs in California, the industry has remained a source of high-paying jobs and serves as an incubator for technological innovation.  Some of the study's recommendations to increase competitiveness and foster growth include:

  • Developing economic, tax, and industrial polices to encourage commercial investment in California
  • Streamlining regulatory constraints and providing tax incentives at the state level
  • Investing in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, and
  • Offering guidance for managing environmental hurdles specific to California.
