The CPC Coding Certification course has been created because of a growing need for coding information and education in the increasingly technical field of professional coding. It is recognized as highly credible and is taught and accredited throughout the country in various Colleges and Universities. This program prepares the student for the (CPC) Certified Professional Coder credential –not just another certificate program. Certified attendee’s may earn up to 20 CEUs for this program. 

Medicare audits and insurance reimbursement policies have contributed to a growing awareness of the importance of accurate coding. With the increasing costs in fraud and abuse prevention and the decline in healthcare reimbursement by both federal and commercial carriers, correct coding knowledge is absolutely essential for practice and hospital survival.

A Certified Professional Coder and Instructor who is licensed with the AAPC will teach this course. The course curriculum is presented in 10 lessons. The lessons include a brief anatomy and terminology review, CPT, HCPC’s Level II and ICD-9 CM coding / scenarios, to ensure knowledge in practical application. Students will receive a certificate of completion for approximately 20 contact hours, and CPC certification (CPC) upon successful passing of the National AAPC Certification Examination.
