When employers say they want experience, what they really mean is "demonstrated skills." They want to know that you can perform the job. Internships and practical training programs can help prove your skillset. The Chronicle of Higher Education surveyed more than 50,000 employers and found that managers unanimously ranked internships and volunteer experience above relevance of coursework, college GPA, and college reputation.

Practicode will help you become a full credential holder faster than ever, separating you from the crowd of new coders.
Practicode’s web-based format allows you gain experience at your own pace, in your own space-when you want.

The program is comprised of three modules, each containing 200 real redacted medical records.

Successfully completing the program fulfills one year of medical coding experience required for the removal of your credential’s apprentice designation.
