This reduces the time required to complete by 3-6 months.
Australian coding rules differ greatly from ICD-10-CM coding rules. Those with experience in in-patient coding (CIC) find it easier to learn ICD-10-AM than a certified outpatient coder (COC). We recognize your prior learning based on evidence provided. Once assessed we provide a discount in price accordingly for your chosen course. This needs to be selected on the basis of your intended geographic work location.
There is no equivalent. No qualification at this level is offered in Australia – The closest we have is the Diploma of Clinical Coding, a more substantial piece of learning than that for AAPC certification. This Diploma is a formal, internationally recognised qualification.
