Distance Learning / E-Learning

This course has now been converted to e-learning. This means that you will be given access to the course material online for self-study. Should you select the e-learning version of the course, you will NOT attend any lectures. You will have a total of 6 weeks to complete the course and will need to complete an online assessment during this time.

There are no specified start dates for the clinical coding courses being completed via e-learning. You can therefore start the course at any time. Your online learning account will be activated within 48 hours of receipt of your completed registration form and proof of payment, i.e. you determine your own start date.
