    ​Is this only for those who are not yet AHIMA approved ICD-10-CM/PCS trainers?  I have the AHIMA Approval--would this benefit me to take it again, in terms of new material?  Or will the material be provided to those of us who already have the Approval during our annual update webinar?

    Hi Kay,

    This is for new trainers. Current trainers will get the new material when they renew this Fall. By the way, the renewal period will open in October 2019.

    After initial training, what is required for renewal, and how often?​

    Hi Robert!

    After initial training and passing the assessment, you will need to renew annually. The renewal process requires trainers to participate in a learning activity, such as listening to a webinar, and then take an assessment to renew. There is also a renewal fee, which is typically around $200.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks Melanie. Just a couple more questions if I may.
    1) The virtual course package does not appear to include the 2020 code books whereas the on site training packages do. Is this an omission/misprint, or does the virtual course include the 2020 CM/PCS code books?  2) Safe to assume the $200 annual fee is up and beyond our regular annual AHIMA dues? 3) Any idea for the timeframe to be online for the virtual course/program?  4) Technology requirements for the virtual course?  Could I do this from a Mac as opposed to a PC?  Thanks! Bob​

    Hi Robert,

    1. Both the 2020 ICD-10-CM and ICD-10-PCS code books will be included with the streaming option as well. This will be updated on the website.
    2. Correct, this is in addition to AHIMA annual dues.
    3. The streaming option will be the same timing as the live event 8:30-4:30 (Monday & Tuesday); 8:30-2:30 (Wednesday)
    4. PC or MAC will work fine

    I hope you are able to join us!
