Medical Coding (MGT 910)
Earn a medical coding certificate and prepare to take the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) Exam. Rapid growth in the number of medical tests, treatments and procedures that will be required by our aging population, as well as increasingly complex insurance and governmental regulations, will generate employment growth in this field. Job opportunities are predicted in physicians’ offices, home health care services and outpatient care centers. Joliet Junior College has partnered with the Frankfort Chapter of the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) to offer this intensive course, which requires at least 10-12 hours of work outside of the classroom. Topics include medical terminology, ICD coding, CPT coding and much more. This unique partnership offers hands-on training and access to a network of other certified medical coders. The exam is given on the last day of the class at JJC. This class meets the requirements to exempt you from one year of on-the-job training needed to satisfy the AAPC apprenticeship obligation on your certification. *NOTE: This class includes a complete, self-guided, on-line course, with virtual, real-time instructor support on Wednesdays (7-8:30p.m.) and Saturdays (9:30a.m.-Noon). Includes textbook, AAPC membership, AAPC licensing exam. Prerequisite: High School Diploma or GED equivalent, at least 18-years-old
