This program is designed to train students on the essentials of successfully working as a coder in the medical, health care or insurance industries. AAPC curriculum is utilized. Upon completion of the course, students will be eligible for the CPC (Certified Professional Coder) exam. AAPC requires that students have two years of coding experience (one year may be substituted with this program), in addition to successful completion of the CPC exam in order to become a CPC. Students taking this program with less than one year experience will be CPC apprentices until one year is submitted to AAPC. Practicodes are available following the successful passing of the CPC exam as a substitute for one year of professional working experience.
