Resources and Guidelines

Become one of thousands of organizations that offer AAPC approved continuing education. Prior approval of continuing education programs is based on the relevance of the program content to the medical coding and reimbursement profession. Being recognized as an approved vendor with AAPC is a privilege extended to vendors who have proven to provide valuable continuing education to our members and the coding community.

The Top Benefits of Becoming an Approved CEU Vendor

  • AAPC CEU approval for your education
  • Your titles listed on the CEU Search Tool, giving visibility to 126,000 members and providing a brief summary of your event
  • "AAPC CEU Approved" logos to use in your marketing
  • Confidence that your education meets the high standards of AAPC
  • Employers can provide continuing education to their certified coding employees for free (see guidelines for more details)
  • Multi-specialty breakout events can now request a Code Card. Instead of multiple certificates, use one approved document to write down the index number at the end of each session.
  • Approvals for regular sessions are valid for 12 months, which allows the event to be repeated multiple times during the approval period.
  • Post Secondary School Instructors, receive pre-approved CEUs for your live face-to-face courses (see guidelines for more details)
