AHIMA-Approved ICD-10 Trainer Program

Please take the time to become familiarized with the benefits of participating in AHIMA’s AHIMA-Approved ICD-10 Trainer Program. Successful completion of the coursework and the end of learning assessment leads to designation as an AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer/AHIMA-Approved ICD-10-CM Trainer. The certificate represents the following:

  • Completion of a non-degree granting program designed to provide instruction and training towards acquiring specific knowledge;
  • The evaluation of such learning against intended outcomes (learning objectives); and
  • Demonstration of proficiency in the subject matter.

Becoming an AHIMA-approved ICD-10 Trainer allows the opportunity to provide prior-approved CEUs to students. This means students know your ICD-10 curriculum is approved by AHIMA.

ICD-10 Trainer status is valid annually through June 30th. The annual certificate renewal process is staged around code updates released by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). For each renewal period, specific learning outcomes will be defined, educational program(s) provided, and a self-review designed to evaluate attainment of the intended learning outcomes. Successful completion of the renewal program extends ICD-10 Trainer status out through June 30th of the subsequent year.
