Description

The course, which includes a total of 14 hours of classroom work, is divided into lectures and work sessions in which actual hospital charts are used for coding exercises. The course does not teach how to use the ICD. It is designed for those relatively new to AIS coding. For the online course, in addition to the actual course work online, students can spend anywhere from 2-6 hours per week on homework. There are also deadlines for homework assignments which are due a minimum of 24 hours prior to each live classroom session. The student should also have some knowledge of how to maneuver through an independent learning program on the internet.

 

These recommendations for online and onsite courses are to ensure your success in completion of the Injury Scaling Course and will provide you with a solid basis from which to build your AIS coding understanding.

 

1. 3-6 months of experience in working with a trauma or coding registry.

2. Basic anatomy course or equivalency.
