IMPORTANT! Protect Yourself by Making the Right HIPAA Training Decision For Your Managed Services Business

Take the HIPAA & Profit Masterclass AND have at least one key manager or technical engineer take the Certified HIPAA Security Professional course.

What's the difference between the Masterclass and the CHSP training?

In the Masterclass you learn just what an MSP needs to know to make their company compliant. And, your bonuses include checklists, templates, Business Associate Agreements, and more. AND, you have someone to contact any time you have HIPAA questions or need to help a client deal with a breach.

The CHSP class is a general course focused on HIPAA.

You need BOTH to make your business successful.

Why do you need this Masterclass?

Frankly, based on experience with hundreds of MSP's, if you try to learn HIPAA on your own, or 'wing-it' with compliance, you will likely fail a HIPAA audit or a breach investigation. We have worked with MSP's who thought they "had HIPAA handled" only to be SHOCKED at what they were missing.

If you have even one healthcare client, or a client that is a HIPAA Business Associate, you must comply with HIPAA. MSP's often underestimate their HIPAA risks, or you think you can apply a generic HIPAA compliance solution to your MSP business. Mike Semel has helped thousands of MSP's understand how HIPAA relates to exactly what you do. He has managed HIPAA projects for hundreds of healthcare organizations and business associates, and will show you how to turn HIPAA into profitable services. 

Our HIPAA Masterclass is taught exclusively for IT Managed Service Providers by IT and healthcare thought leader, Mike Semel, a former MSP. The reason Mike is teaching this class is that he has actually implemented it. He was an MSP providing managed services to healthcare organizations. This led to him being the Chief Information Officer for a hospital and a K-12 school district, Chief Operating Officer at an online backup company, and now as a sought-after consultant.

The companies that want you to resell their "We Make HIPAA Easy" products have designed their solutions for healthcare providers and to cover every type of Business Associate. Their HIPAA training is generic, for a wide range of healthcare organizations and businesses who work with them. Our training is designed for you. We know what MSPs need because we started out as an MSP. Mike Semel will help you do just the things you must do, and not waste time trying to figure out what parts of HIPAA relate to you.

“This course was a great investment. The time we will save in policy development and research will pay for the class many times over.”-- Michael Williams, Winxnet, Portland, ME

"We love talking with Semel Consulting because they understand what an MSP does and what our needs are. I would highly recommend Semel Consulting to assist you with all your HIPAA compliance needs."--Shawn Ruhl, CTO, vTech io, Naples, Florida

" Mike Semel is on the cutting edge of understanding the law, and more importantly how to apply it for the benefit of customers and those who take care of them.” - Arlin Sorensen, Founder, HTG Peer Groups

"Mike Semel has been an invaluable HIPAA mentor to thousands of IT experts who are part of The ASCII Group, the largest and oldest group of Managed IT Service Providers in the world.  We rely on Mike to help our members with the ins and outs of HIPAA.” - Alan D. Weinberger. Chairman and CEO, The ASCII Group

“You did a great job on the CompTIA Security Trustmark training. I just returned from HTG yesterday and I told all my peers to take the next training you offer.”
-- Robert Kyslinger, Omnipotech, Houston, TX

"Thanks for being such a good partner for us IT service providers. We need guys like you... I have continued to tout you folks to both the HTG and Robin Robins peer groups I am in. You folks are A-1."
-- Tim Gillen, Terrapin Networks, Traverse City, MI

Semel Consulting offers 3 types of HIPAA training. You need to incorporate all 3 types to ensure you have a comprehensive security and compliance program.
