Take your first step toward a career in healthcare and join one of the fastest growing fields by becoming a Certified Professional Coder (CPC). This course covers the basics of medical coding and prepares students for the CPC Examination offered through the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), one of the most recognized medical coding certifications in the healthcare industry. Students will learn the purpose and use of CPT ®, ICD-10-CM and HCPCS coding manuals as well as how to determine diagnostic and service codes for outpatient health care facilities such as provider practices and clinics. CPC's may be employed in outpatient health care facilities such as doctor's offices, clinics, outpatient surgical centers and retail clinics.
