Introduction to the 2018 Online Training Courses: Available August 1, 2018
The CAHIIM training series is designed to meet the needs of educators by providing training at a time that is convenient to your schedule. The CAHIIM Accreditation Training Series (CATS) is designed for Health Information Management (HIM) and Health Informatics (HI) degree programs and explores the areas where most questions arise in the accreditation process. Courses will change each year as changes occur in curriculum and CAHIIM accreditation criteria and policies. The library of offerings will expand with time. Be sure to suggest an area that you would like to see addressed in the future to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The series is available to any CAHIIM Accredited or candidacy program at no additional charge and provides quick answers to topics where most questions arise in the initial and continued accreditation process. All offerings are free to CAHIIM programs except for the workshop courses.
The Conference series is available at no charge for individuals that attended the in-person workshop by CAHIIM and is available for a fee for those that did not attend in person.

Each module has the run time listed so you know if you only have 20 minutes, whether you can finish that module or not. CATS voice-over video lectures are designed to run on PCs and mobile devices. The videos may not operate correctly on Mac computers.
Before you begin a course, please view this quick (less than 5 minutes) tutorial on how to navigate within ECHO 360 for PC. The PC version is the one you use when you want to download handouts or the PowerPoint slide set: https://www.screencast.com/t/8qM4SIgcuAV
The ECHO360 Mobile app
We encourage you to download the mobile app so that you can take your courses with you and easily go through the training as you have a few minutes. The mobile app is very intuitive and does not need a tutorial.
AHIMA CEUs are available
Enrollees in ECHO360 who have an AHIMA credential, can receive CEUs for completing a course that will be verified. A CAHIIM CEU certificate is available on demand for the corresponding training hours and will be sent to the email on record. After you have completed your training, please leave a message on the message board within the course and request your certificate.
