Become ICD-10 Certified
Northwestern College is now offering CEUs with an ICD-10-CM/PCS Online Workforce Readiness Certificate.
Designed for those who already have ICD-9 and CPT coding experience, our three college courses provide deep learning in CM and PCS coding techniques. In-depth online labs reinforce new concepts with hands-on training of the ICD-10-CM/PCS coding system and its applications.
Each course runs for six weeks and covers ten modules, with all work completed online. An AHIMA ICD-10 certified trainer will instruct each course.
Our coding instruction takes you from ICD-10 awareness to ICD-10 competence. The instructor led lectures and lab practice gives you the confidence you need to begin coding in ICD-10 professionally.
