  • equipment and books that you will need. 
All potential participants in the program should attend. You may register for classes immediately following this information session. 

Certificate Program
Healthcare is one of the most job-secure fields of the next few decades and knowledge of coding and billing can open lots of doors. Our certificate program will give you basic foundational knowledge and skills, an understanding of the types of jobs the knowledge applies to, and the variety of career paths. The program consists of 10 required classes, totaling more than 80 hours of class time, plus plenty of at-home and online practice. Developed by professionals in the field, it can be completed in about six months.

Participation in the Certificate Program is not required. Individual classes may be taken as long as you meet prerequisites. However, only students who successfully complete all required classes will earn our certificate.

Texts and necessary manuals are not included in the class fees. Some required books may be purchased in our campus bookstore; all are available online. Expect to spend approximately $500 for these books which provide up-to-date information and are used throughout the program. Click here for our Medical Coding & Billing Syllabus and Book List.

Because on-campus food services can be very limited, plan to bring a sack lunch for these all-day Saturday classes.
