Earning your Certified Professional Coder (CPC®) credential, the most recognized and respected medical coding certification in the healthcare industry, will be one of the smartest decisions of your life. Why struggle in a dead-end job? You can start your training now and, in just 16 weeks, be ready for your career as a respected and well-paid professional coder.
Ensure your certification is backed by quality training—because potential employers certainly will. Consider these factors when choosing a program:
Check to see if course instructors are certified coders. Make sure they have experience in real-world coding, so you can trust their instruction. Also look into their availability. Will training occur in-person?
Short courses are a red flag and should alert you that the program is teaching you to pass a test more than prepare you for a career. Courses should be a minimum of 96 hours in order for you to master of CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS Level II coding.
Code sets change every year, and textbooks must be current. A lot of courses use outdated books, and overcharge for them. You end up paying a lot more than you expect if the latest books and materials aren’t included in course tuition.
Know exactly what’s included before comparing prices. Besides textbooks, many courses don’t cover the cost of the CPC exam and AAPC membership. They do this to make their course look like the better priced option when it isn't.
Get certified in 16 weeks and launch your career in medical coding! By training with AAPC, you can be sure you’ve received a comprehensive and effective education. In fact, taking your training through AAPC means you are far more likely to pass the CPC exam than through other programs.
