Enrollment for Medical Coding is Currently Closed
Unfortunately, as of November 8th, 2019, all open seats in our medical coding program pathway have been filled. Calbright is at an early stage of development, and is in many ways still under construction. Though we would love to be able to take on as many learners as possible, we aren’t able to accommodate everyone who expresses interest in this particular pathway.
However, we still have openings in our Information Technology and Cybersecurity pathways, and would be happy to explore whether those options would be a good fit. If neither work for you, don’t get discouraged. Stay in touch so you can be alerted when we announce brand new program pathways, or if new seats open in the medical coding pathway.
Please know we’re here to help every step of the way in your new education journey. In the meantime feel free to check your local college here and do a keyword search for medical coding.
Employment in Medical Coding (AAPC CPC Certification)
Calbright College is a new kind of California Community College. At Calbright, we prepare working adults for careers in better paying, more upwardly mobile jobs, including Medical Coding. Medical coding represents a key entry point to higher paying healthcare careers. Accurate coding of medical services for insurance billing is a critical need, and medical coders are in especially high demand, with an estimated 11,000 new total jobs added between 2017 and 2024.
People who enroll in a Calbright Job Ready Program and achieve AAPC CPC Certification will glide directly into a paid apprenticeship in the job they trained for, which can lead to a new, full-time job.
The best part? All of this is free to our enrolled learners. And all of it has been designed to be done in under one year.
