Get your certification as an Abbreviated Injury Scale specialist!
AAAM is proud to sponsor a Certification program for Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) specialists. CAISS Certification provides formal recognition of AIS coding knowledge and application. 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. 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.
Who should consider getting certified? Experienced AIS coders are encouraged to obtain certification. Once certified, individuals must retest every 5 years to maintain their CAISS certification.
Why get certified? Certification demonstrates your commitment to AIS coding knowledge, application, and continued learning. These merits can help boost your professional credibility and prestige within your own network, and when pursuing new business opportunities.
How to start the process? Contact the certification program administrator, Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) to obtain a Handbook for Candidates or for more information concerning the examination.
All results are provided to the candidates sitting for the examination via email approximately four to six weeks post-test. The list of passing/failing candidates is then provided to AAAM. A congratulations letter from either the Chairman of the AIS Certification Board or the International Technical Coordinator/AIS Course Director is then sent to those passing the exam.
