Clinical Coding Trainer Refresher Course


The Clinical Coding Trainer Refresher Course:

  • is fundamental to the continued professional development of all Terminology and Classifications Delivery Approved Clinical Coding Trainers
  • assesses whether trainers are keeping their practical coding skills and theoretical knowledge up-to-date for the OPCS-4 and ICD-10 classifications and associated updates
  • supports trainers to ensure they are able to continue to deliver accurate and consistent clinical coding training in the NHS

Find out all about the Clinical Coding Trainer Refresher Course in the Clinical Coding Trainer Programme Handbook.
Please note: The Refresher Course is open to approved Clinical Coding Trainers only. All approved Clinical Coding Trainers are required to attend a dedicated Trainer Refresher Course every three years.

Important Information

According to our records, 55 approved trainers are due to attend a Trainer Refresher (TR) course in 2021-22. We will deliver four online TR courses, each with a maximum of 11 places. We plan to reserve these 44 places for those trainers whose Refresher course is due before October 2021. Any trainer whose course is due after October 2021, will be carried over to 2022-23. Please contact if you are unsure about when your Trainer Refresher Course is next due.

Please also note that we are unable to hold Re-Certification assessments as part of the online TR delivery during 2021-22 because we recommend that Re-Certification assessments are undertaken in a classroom environment, wherever possible. If you are due a Re-Certification assessment, please contact TAP Learning to discuss possible options. The training team will publish further advice on this in the February Trainer Bulletin.

Please note that anyone applying for the 2021-22 Trainer Refresher should ensure that - where a Purchase Order (PO) or Promise to Pay (PtP) is being obtained - this is attached with the application documents, rather than emailed to separately by the organisation’s Finance or Procurement department.

We are unable to process applications for courses where the PO or PtP is not included within the application documents.
