Registered Apprenticeship Program - Job Seekers
Apprenticeships are the Future of HIM!
AHIMA and AHIMA Foundation's National Guidelines for Apprenticeship
Standard were certified by the United States Department of Labor (DoL).
The certification of the guidelines will help to bridge the gap for
graduating or post-certification student seeking career in HIM through

employment. The Foundation acts as a bridge between interested
employers (sponsors), apprentices, and the Employment and Training Administration of the Department of Labor.
We have developed four apprenticeship roles:
