This intensive American Association of Professional Coders (AAPC) Medical Coding Training Course will teach the students the fundamentals of medical coding skills for physician-based coding and prepares the student to take AAPC’s CPC Exam. The course covers CPT, HCPCS and ICD-10-CM coding as they apply to these healthcare settings. A minimum of 80 hours of coding instruction will be provided by a certified AAPC instructor. All textbooks/e-books, an AAPC student membership, practice exam, CPC Certification Exam, and a Practicode CPC-A Practicum are included in this course. This intensive fast pace program leads to CPC certification in the medical coding field.

As a prerequisite to participate in the coding instruction in the course, all students will be given access to the AAPC Medical Terminology (40-hours) & AAPC Anatomy (40-hours) online modules on 07/17/2023. Both online modules must successfully be completed prior to starting the coding portion of the course that begins on 08/13/2023. If the student does not pass both online modules by this time, they will be dropped from the course without a refund.

The AAPC CPC Certification Exam will be held at Hawkeye Community College after the course has been successfully completed. The certification exam may be re-taken one time if it is not passed on the first attempt.
