This intensive AAPC course will teach principles of medical coding related to the three main codebooks: CPT, ICD-10-CM Code Set and HCPCS.

A foundation in medical terminology and anatomy will be taught online with modules that are 40 hours each. Access to online modules will be given on 1/25/2021. 80 hours of classroom instruction will be provided on coding by a certified AAPC instructor. Classroom sessions begin on 2/22/2021.

The Practicum is comprised of 600 medical records to be coded, which allows an individual to complete the equivalent of 1-year professional coding experience. Successful completion of the practicum allows the student to enter the workforce as a credentialed CPC, without having an apprentice designation as typically required before work experience obtained.
