Aloha HIMAH Members,
Did you know that AHIMA offers apprenticeship programs which provide training for hired apprentices. The focus of the program is to help employers provide related instruction to their employees. The following apprenticeship roles are available:
- Hospital Coder/Coding Professional
- Professional Fee Coder
- Clinical Documentation Improvement Specialist
- Privacy and Security Officer
Overview of the AHIMA Apprenticeship program:
AHIMA and AHIMA Foundation’s National Guidelines for Apprenticeship Standard were certified by the United States Department of Labor (DoL). The certification of the guidelines will help to bridge the gap for graduating or post-certification student seeking a career in HIM through paid apprenticeships, which will provide a clear pathway to full-time employment. The Foundation acts as a bridge between interested employers (sponsors), apprentices, and the Employment and Training Administration of the Department of Labor.
Don’t wait to register for the program!
The AHIMA Apprenticeship program must be completed by September 30, 2020, so if you’re interested, register now!
