How is the course delivered?

Each module is offered by way of distance education using either email or standard post. Following the course content, there are self-assessment exercises to monitor your progress and then a final assignment for submission, which is made up of line coding, coding scenarios and coding from discharge summaries.

How long does the course take to complete?

Generally speaking, the course needs to be completed within 12 months. Modules vary in complexity so you may complete some quickly and others may take you longer. Time taken will also depend on how many specialty modules you need to complete. The course is completed by self-directed study so each person’s progress may also depend on their work commitments and study time.

Do I get a certificate?

Yes, each person who successfully completes the course will received a Certificate of Completion. Students must achieve a minimum pass mark of 85% for each module. The course is industry recognised.

Are there any additional resources required?

Students are required to access ICD-10-AM, ACHI and ACS coding books which are available in hard copy or online. We recommend TurboCoder as a preferred provider of a digital clinical coding reference tool. It is also recommended that students refer to a medical terminology text.
