CPC Course FAQs

What is the CPC Course?

The CPC Course is designed to teach students how to medical code for professionals (physicians),  prepare for the CPC® certification exam through AAPC, and how to take the exam at a rapid pace.   Upon completion students should be prepared to test for the CPC® exam.  No other courses should be necessary.

If taken independently,  If the student invests 20 hours per week toward study, this course can be completed in 8 to 16 weeks.  If taken Guided, this course can be completed in 20 weeks.   However the average AMCI student completes the course in 6 to 8 months.  Our Independent Course is a self-paced course, and can be started and completed at any time.  Our Guided Course is offered only in January and May annually.

The course is $2200.00 for one year’s (14 month’s) access.

The required text books needed to complete the Course are as follows: Current year ICD-10-CM , HCPCS Level II, and CPT – AMA professional edition.  The AAPC PMCC Manual, and the AMCI Test Taking Techniques Manual.  The descriptions of the texts are listed within your course, and there is a link directing you to purchase through the AAPC website at a special discounted rate.
