ASHEBORO (March 7, 2019)
Randolph Community College is offering two online medical coding classes and two courses for auto dealers in April.
In the medical coding classes, students will learn medical terminology and anatomy as well as how to use the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) manual and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) to work as a coder in the health care field (doctors’ offices, clinics, public health facilities, hospitals, etc.).
These classes help prepare students for the AAPC CPC (Certified Professional Coder) National exam. The CPC is the gold standard for medical coding in physician office settings.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for certified medical coders will increase 22 percent through the year 2022.
