When funding is available national coding training is announced through the Area HIM consultants. Also, there are options available for staff to gain this needed training through professional coding organizations such as the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) , the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) , and Procedural Coders Institute .
