The Certified Professional Coder (CPC) course is an 80 clock-hour self-paced online course that teaches fundamental medical coding skills for professional services (physicians, mid-level providers, etc) and prepares the student to take AAPC's CPC and/or AHIMA's CCA exam. The course covers CPT, HCPCS and ICD-10-CM coding and assures a broad knowledge in reviewing and assigning the correct procedure and diagnosis codes for professional (physician) services. The course is designed to be completed in 4 to 6 months; however, we give our students access for one year at no additional charge. Successful completion of this course counts as one year of credit toward removal of your apprentice status after you pass the CPC certification exam.
Expert Medical Coding provides feedback to students via the online platform and through unlimited email support. We also offer an interactive environment for students to collaborate with each other and their instructor, as well as test-taking strategies and career resources.
In addition to the course tuition, students must purchase their AAPC membership ($90), coding book bundle ($199.99), course textbook and workbook ($109.95), and CPC certification exam ($325). A link for these discounted prices will be emailed after enrollment. Only the code book bundle and the course textbook and workbook need to be purchased prior to starting the course.
