Medical coding is one of the fastest growing specialties in the healthcare industry. Certified medical coders require vast knowledge of medical terminology, the insurance industry, anatomy, and information technology to code patient history, diagnoses, and treatments that's used by health care providers and insurance companies.

You can advance your career by registering for our online Certified Medical Coding course or our in-class Certified Medical Coding course. Upon successful completion of either course, you will be prepared to sit for the AAPC Certified Professional Coder (CPC®) exam to become a certified professional coder.

The increase in the nation’s aging population — combined with new federal regulations requiring providers to keep electronic medical records — has created increased demand for certified medical coding professionals. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical coding will see nearly 15% growth through 2024, outpacing other careers.
