AHIMA Foundation Registered Apprenticeship Program

Apprenticeships are the Future of HIM!

For Job Seekers

AHIMA and AHIMA Foundation's National Guidelines for Apprenticeship Standards 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 paid apprenticeships, which will provide a clear pathway to full-time employment. The Foundation acts as a bridge between interested employers (sponsors), apprentices, and the Employment and Training Administration of the Department of Labor.

The AHIMA Foundation was awarded a $4.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor (DoL) to fund the Managing the HIM Talent Pipeline (MTP) apprenticeship program to help 1,200 recent graduates and career-changers take on healthcare information careers over the next five years. The grant will ensure that career-ready individuals possess the skills, training, and experiential learning required by employers in today's healthcare market. Through the apprenticeship program, the AHIMA Foundation will serve to bridge the gap for those seeking their first employment and provide career mobility for those seeking a career change or career advancement opportunity.
