Announcement from ICD-10 Coders Academy

Comprehensive ICD-10 Training with Certified ICD-10 Consultant Certification-ICA is the only organization that offers Proctored ICD-10 Certification Exam.
  • (1888PressRelease) November 05, 2013 - The number of universities and training companies offering online courses continues to grow, with offerings indicating that over 6.7 million students were enrolled in at least one online course in 2011, an increase of 570,000 students over the previous year. Thirty-two percent of higher education students now take at least one course online.

    This increase in online education has ushered in a host of concerns that educators and professionals around the globe are attempting to address. Some of these include the level of the course quality and the integrity of online exams.

    Several studies, based on in-class proctored online exams, have shown the benefits of in-class proctored exams. Some of the benefits include improved performance on the post-test measures and more time spent taking the test (Wellman 2005; Alexander et al. 2001).

    Companies looking to hire coders and other staff to assist with the transition to ICD-10 require individuals who can prove competency within the required skill sets as well as the ability to perceive the overall needs of the organization and their role within this larger scope.

    ICD-10 Coders Academy provides, not only superior, comprehensive training, but offers the ONLY proctored certification exams for ICD-10 in the industry. Designed to improve performance, increase confidence and prepare professionals for ICD-10 Implementation, ICA's online training and proctored certification exams raise the industry standard to new heights.

    ICA's computer-based, proctored certification exams for Coders, Analysts and Consultants are offered at over 350 Testing Centers across the nation. With ICD-10 Implementation only a year away, the time to train and test is now.

    ICA-Kryterion Test Centers are monitored by Kryterion Certified Proctors (KCPs), who are trained to monitor testing sessions with the highest level of attention to detail, a multi-step authentication and validation process, and equipped with professional testing rooms and designated sign-in areas.

    ICD-10 Coders Academy Credentials distinguishes an individual as competent, knowledgeable, and committed towards ICD-10 Implementation.

    Please note that ICA Certifications are not approved by AHIMA and AAPC.

    ICA ICD-10 credentials are neither mandatory nor approved by any Federal and/or State government agency/agencies.

    Being certified is not the same as being licensed. Licensing is a government-controlled process that serves as a requirement for functioning in specific professions. Certification on the other hand, is a voluntary credentialing process which is generally managed by members of the profession. Industry-based certification might sometimes be accepted and encouraged by hospitals and payers because it provides a set of high standards consistently maintained which ultimately benefit the public when developed and managed appropriately.
