The APCA/SC Alaska AHEC is launching a cohort of Apprenticeships in February 2020. This opportunity is funded by the Department of Labor and is free to students and health care facilities. In order to participate, Apprenticeship candidates must be already employed, preferably new, at a Health facility. Employers will need to review and agree to program requirements for mentoring Apprentices and wage progression.

Those who complete the program have the opportunity to earn an undergraduate certificate from APU.

Apprentices have the option of certification courses for CMA, CMAA, Billing Coding Specialist, and EHR Specialists. Courses are 1-hour weekly classes, delivered via videoconference. To learn more about Apprenticeship opportunites, visit
