The Medical Coding Certificate at Rhodes State College serves as a gateway to the American Association of Procedural Coder’s (AAPC) national certification examination. Upon successful completion of this Rhodes State College certificate, the student is eligible to take the AAPC’s national certification examination. Successful completion of that exam results in the student being an Apprentice Certified Procedural Coder. When the student can document two years employment as a procedural coder, the student will become a Certified Procedural Coder. CPC’s are employed in a variety of settings including, but not limited to, physician’s offices, clinics, insurance companies, ambulatory care centers, home health agencies, etc.
To be eligible for the Medical Coding Certificate, a student must have received a grade of “C” or better for each course required for the certificate and completed all courses within four (4) years of applying for the certificate, or at the discretion of the Chair.
