Your HIM Department, Trained and Transformed

through AHIMA's Approved Trainer Program

Imagine the benefits of an in-house program that mitigates the brain-drain caused by staff turnover. Due to the popularity of our ICD-10 Trainer Workshops, AHIMA has extended this concept to other important topics, including a complete renovation of the original ICD-10 program.

Available in 2019, qualified candidates have an opportunity to attend immersive trainer sessions for CDI, Revenue Cycle and ICD-10. Graduates receive a digital AHIMA-Approved Trainer Badge to proudly display in emails and on resumes. Badges link to AHIMA.org, validating trainer status and achievement.

A recent 2019 survey of past attendees affirms the incredible benefits one receives:

78% say – “The trainer designation helped advance my career”

79% say – “Employers often require or look favorably upon this designation”

63% say – “Personally trained 20 + people”
