Employment in Medical Coding (AAPC CPC-A 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-A 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.
