Would you like a marketable career in healthcare in as little as 1 year?  Take a look at the Medical Coding Certificate program at Dakota College.

Coding is vital to the success of any medical office and is always in demand. Medical providers rely on coders to skillfully navigate medical records and accurately code diagnoses and procedures. This is key in patient care, and invaluable to any medical facility.

Upon earning the Medical Coding Certificate, students are eligible to site for the Certified Coding Associate (CCA) exam through The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).


State Licensure Requirements: All DCB programs fulfill the requirements for licensure in the state of North Dakota. Please be aware that we are currently working on researching if our curriculum/degree meets licensure requirements in other states. Students seeking to pursue this degree outside of North Dakota must contact our Academic Affairs office to confirm whether the program may be licensed in the students’ home state.

Any of our Allied Health degrees can be earned entirely online!

You can help build the healthcare system of tomorrow while building a successful career for yourself…all at a pace that works for you!
