U.S. Career Institute was founded in 1981 in California. Amid name changes, ownership changes and headquarter relocations, the organization has remained solidly committed to providing certification options in a variety of fields for professionals seeking to further their careers and expand their opportunities. U.S. Career Institute offers distance education where course takers can go at their own speed and timing.
The organization has a number of benefits, including:
USCI is perfect for adults who are currently working as professionals in the field of their choice. The certification courses are a wonderful way for the student to bolster his or her skills and demonstrate to his or her employer their willingness to acquire more knowledge related to their work. Sometimes, employer will reimburse students for taking the certification courses.
USCI course takers are not guaranteed more income, better job opportunities or anything of the like. Students who take the certification courses for this reason should realize their efforts may not lead to their desired end.
USCI credits for courses will not carry over into programs at different institutions. Students should take the courses with the mindset that they are learning new information and gaining valuable skills, bot with the intent that they are going to further their college ambitions.

I took the Medical Coding and Billing Course offered through the U.S. Career Institute. Afterwards, as I was applying for jobs, I became aware that their accreditations are not the ones employers are looking for. Any Coding or Billing course through any institution that is not AAPC or AHIMA accredited is useless and will not help you get a job. The U.S. Career Institute has neither of these accreditations. Google search for online programs that are AAPC or AHIMA accredited, there are inexpensive online options with the appropriate credentials in a similar price range.
