    Hi. Can someone who knows clarify for me...I know all CPCs will need to take test by 9/14 in order to maintain credentials..and that will require some level of training in ICD 10. My question relates to becoming a certified trainer, (ie certified by AAPC or AHIMA) as an icd 10 INSTRUCTOR. Is there any REQUIREMENT (if so, please cite) that anyone who teaches internally (ie within a hospital or MD group setting) HAS TO BE a certified trainer?? Or is it enough that people who are charged with training educate themselves via seminars, on line tutorials etc and then train staff appropriately? thanks

    I would think that in order to qualify as a trainer, one would need to obtain the PMCC certification (http://www.aapc.com/partner/professi...nstructor.aspx). I would certainly feel more comfortable knowing that the person "teaching" has such a set of credentials.
