2020-21 Classifications Training Schedule

Published: March 2020

Dear Colleague,

Following the national NHS and government guidance on the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) we have reviewed our training delivery schedule to ensure that we align with national guidance and operate in the best interests of the wider community.  This has led to a decision to postpone the following events/courses on our 2020/21 Training Schedule:

  • Trainer Refresher Course (TR1) in London on 12-14 May 2020 and any associated Re-Certification assessments
  • CCAP Assessment Day in Leeds on 20 May 2020
  • CCTP Assessment Day in Leeds on 10 June 2020

We realise that this will be a huge disappointment but hope you agree it is important to adhere to the national recommendations to reduce the spread of coronavirus.  As more information emerges we may need to consider postponing other courses or reschedule but will monitor the situation and publish updates accordingly.

Candidates already accepted on to the CCAP or CCTP Assessment Days will not have to re-apply as your applications and Purchase Order / other payment details will automatically be carried across to any rescheduled date. Similarly those trainers who have booked on to the May Trainer Refresher Course will not have to send in a further booking form or payment information as these will automatically carry across to any rescheduled date.

Some approved clinical coding trainers are due or overdue their Trainer Refresher Course and/or their Re-Certification assessment which will be affected by this decision.  Some approved trainers may have to cancel national training courses as a result of the coronavirus guidance, self-isolation or social distancing.  This could impact on your ability to meet the 21 day mandatory training delivery requirement during 2020/21. As this situation is beyond our control, no-one will have their ‘approved’ clinical coding trainer status removed due to either of these circumstances.

Kind regards,
