Certified Professional Coder (CPC) Exam Prep

According to the AAPC, certified coders earn an average 20% higher salary than non-certified coders and many employers now require certification for new hires.

The CPC course is designed by coding experts to introduce and strengthen coding skills to help you achieve more in your career. Medical Insurance Billing and Coding specialists are in high demand with a shortage of qualified candidates. Upon successful completion of this course, students are prepared to challenge the CPC exam, a national coding certification exam.  The CPC credential is nationally recognized by healthcare employers, particularly physician offices, clinics, and hospitals for professional and outpatient coding positions.  

  • The class includes 80 total contact hours (as required by the AAPC)
  • The class is designed to prepare students for the AAPC CPC ® certification exam
  • The course covers CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-10-CM coding 

 Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the purpose and use of the CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS code manuals
  • Use the information found in appendices of the CPT® manual
  • Explain and determine levels of E/M services
  • Code a wide variety of patient charts using CPT®, ICD-10-CM and HCPCS codes
  • Identify and explain the major features and uses of Level II National Codes
  • Apply official coding guidelines and conventions when assigning diagnosis and procedure codes
  • Understand and explain the official ICD-10-CM coding principals
  • Understand and explain the purpose and use of Coding Clinics and CPT Assistants
  • Principles of coding related to the CPT®, ICD-10-CM, and HCPCS code manual

To receive a certificate of completion and eligibility for the CPC credential, you must receive a passing score of 73%. We recommend you have a strong knowledge of medical terminology and experience working in a medical office setting.
