The objective of this program is to provide students with the knowledge and technical skills needed to pursue entry-level employment as Medical Coding and Billing Specialists. The program coursework focuses on helping students gain the basic training necessary to understand and use medical documentation and terminology, as well as assign and sequence diagnostic and procedural codes using universally recognized coding systems.

However, the College cannot guarantee students’ eligibility to take the exam, or that they will pass the exam. It is the student’s responsibility to inquire into and understand all eligibility requirements.
