For many years HIMAA has been lobbying government and the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council for the development of a full qualification for Clinical Coders (CCs) under the Vocational Education and Training system. Three units of competency are currently available for CC training within the Health Training Package1 however it has long been recognised that the entry level unit does not meet industry needs. Despite additional lobbying by some of the jurisdictions and recognition by the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council that a qualification was needed, Commonwealth funding was not available to undertake the development work by the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council.
