AHIMA's Distance Education Web site is
a "virtual" campus,
which means there are no actual buildings or classrooms.
All the programs and courses we offer online are self-paced.
That means that all the readings and tests are available
to the students for as long as they are enrolled, that
students need very little interaction with instructors,
and everyone can complete their work independently.
Our distance education courses offer the following
benefits to members and nonmembers alike:
- Access your courses 24 hours a day from
nearly any location
- Attend as many classes
as you want, when you want
- Learn from
industry experts, book authors, and professional
- Obtain the most up-to-date information
on healthcare information management
at your own pace
- Reduce the overall time
spent in training
- Increase your retention
of vital concepts
Is Online Learning for Me?
Many people, for many reasons, choose to study at home through independent, Internet-based programs. Most find that independent study is a flexible method of acquiring job knowledge and skills at their own pace, often while maintaining full-time jobs.
Independent, Internet-based study may be a viable option for you if:
- You're not near a college with a coding program
can't attend class for personal reasons
- You prefer to study at your own pace
Are you ready for online learning?
It takes self-discipline and commitment to study
at home. In deciding if independent, Internet-based study
is right for you, consider your ability to:
- Establish regular study habits
- Play an active role
in your own education
- Work out most problems independently
- Don't need a
great deal of instructor interaction
- Enjoy participating in online discussions.
