CanScribe Career College, a leading educator for online learning in North America, announced today that their interactive online computer programs have been preapproved by AHDI for Continuing Education Credits (CECs). The preapproval program was established by AHDI and the Credentialing Commission for Healthcare Documentation (CCHD) to ensure credentialed candidates have a clear system to identify credit-worthy continuing education activities. The computer courses at CanScribe meet AHDIs strict requirements of providing new or advanced information related to technology and medical transcription/healthcare documentation tools.
“We are very pleased with our courses receiving CEC status,” says Jesse Koteles, CanScribe Director of IT & Operations. “This is an important milestone for CanScribe and recognizes both the value of the courses we provide and their practicality to the healthcare documentation and related fields.”
