Become a Certified Abbreviated Injury Scale Specialist (CAISS)
AAAM is proud to sponsor a Certification program for Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) specialists. The AIS Certification Board (AISC.B) has been established under the auspices of AAAM’s Board of Directors. The AIS Certification Board endorses the concept of voluntary periodic certification by examination for all AIS Coding Specialists. Certification is part of a credentialing process. It focuses specifically on the individual and is an indication of current competence in a specialized area of practice. Board Certification provides formal recognition of AIS coding knowledge and application. Experienced AIS coders are encouraged to obtain certification.
The certification program is administered for the AISC.B by the Professional Testing Corporation (PTC), 1350 Broadway – 17th floor, New York, New York 10018 (www.ptcny.com). To obtain a Handbook for Candidates or for more information concerning the examination, contact PTC or click here.
