CEUs (Continue education units) are important to retain your AAPC or AHIMA credentials. All the certified medical coders have to submit an allotted number of coding CEUs before few months of their renewal date. But, many times we are not able to get the required number of CEUs earned from AAPC or AHIMA. It is very important to note that Free Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are not easily available. If you are short of CEUs, you have to either get it from other sources like codebusters, super coder, Medtronic etc. You can also buy CEUs from AAPC or AHIMA, but it is very costly. 1 CEU may cost you around 30$ to 40$. Hence, it is very important to keep collecting Free CEUs for CPC or any other exam by attending webinars and training conducted by AAPC or AHIMA. Recently I have come across a site where you can get Free Continuing Education Units for AAPC medical coders. Yes, you have to just register and attend the webinar. You can earn 1.5 CEUs for each webinar. Let us check how you can get free CEUs for AAPC certificate.
