It is necessary for CPC’s to understand the health records and their content in order to conduct proper research and provide the correct coding. With five required courses, individuals will become Certified Professional Coders. Students will learn medical language, terminology, and abbreviations, the basics of biology and anatomy, and the overall guidelines for coding. The program also includes a review for the CPC exam, an Advanced Coding workshop, and a mock CPC exam.
