Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS

Course Overview


You've trusted HCPro for years to deliver accurate and effective coding training.

Now we can help you re-engage in your ICD-10 journey.

The Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS uses a combination of lecture, class discussion, and hands-on exercises to fully prepare hospital inpatient coders or anyone who needs mastery of both diagnosis and procedure codes for inpatient services for ICD-10.

This class provides comprehensive education on ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS. Our expert instructors begin class with an introduction to the new coding classification system, exploring all new and revised coding conventions/guidelines. Instructors then move into in-depth discussions about common ICD-10-CM chapter-specific codes. Students spend the last half of class learning inpatient-specific topics, such as ICD-10-PCS structure, procedure code selection from the ICD-10-PCS tables, application of root operation definitions, and associated guidelines. Class ends with a discussion of how ICD-10 affects the MS-DRG payment classification system.

Coders walk away from class with the skills and confidence needed to tackle ICD-10-CM and PCS and accurately assign ICD-10 codes for all medical and surgical specialties.

The Certified Coder Boot Camp®—ICD-10-CM & ICD-10-PCS isn't just any ICD-10 coding course. Check out all the benefits this Boot Camp offers:

  • Rules-based learning: Our instructors only use recognized source authorities, such as the Official Guidelines for ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS Coding Guidelines and the AHA's ICD-10 Coding Clinic, in course materials.
  • We teach then test: Coding is an activity that is not truly mastered without exercises that test comprehension. Students complete exercises for each module and review the answers with the instructors. We provide answer keys and rationale to all exercises so that coders can refer to the materials long after the Boot Camp is over.
  • Learn from the experts: Our instructors have a unique combination of real-world coding experience and adult education experience. They know exactly what coders need to learn and how to present complex coding topics in an easy-to-understand manner.
  • Earn valuable CEs to maintain your credentials: This course offers CEs from several major national and state organizations.
  • Custom-designed course materials: Proprietary materials and exercises are developed by instructors specifically for this immersion learning format.
  • Well-established program: HCPro is the nation's first organization to offer Boot Camp training courses to healthcare coding professionals. We currently conduct more than 60 Certified Coder Boot Camps each year. On average, participants have rated HCPro coding Boot Camps at 4.9 on a 5.0 scale.
