Minimum of two years coding experience and coding certification strongly recommended.
Required Code Books
Students enrolling in AAPC exam preparation courses CPC, COC, CPB, CDEO and CPMA are required to purchase the CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS Level II code books, CRC exam preparation students are required to purchase a ICD-10-CM code book, and CIC exam preparation students are required to purchase the ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code books. The course and exam are updated each calendar year. Students may use current calendar year and/or the previous year's code books when taking any AAPC examination. However, it is strongly suggested that only current manuals be used for both the course and the certification exam. Students may need to consider purchasing code books for two different calendar years, if their exam is taken in a different calendar year than their course.
