HLT50321 Diploma of Clinical Coding

Due to the demand for our HLT50321 Diploma of Clinical Coding we have increased our intakes for this course from two to three per year. In addition, we will be capping student numbers to 100 per intake to allow a more even spread of the workload for our Education Officers.

The three intakes will be March, May and July each year. Enrolments will open on the 1st of the month and close on the 22nd of the month or as soon as we reach 100 enrolments.

If you are planning to enrol any staff in the diploma, please ask them to download the enrolment form from our website as soon as the intake opens and send it off to us as soon as they can. Please note that enrolments are not confirmed until the screening tests are completed, so it’s important to complete the tests as soon as possible to secure a place.
