HIMAA Education Officers are regularly assessed by Education Services to ensure that their knowledge and skills are current and at industry standard. Some Education Officers continue to work within the industry and sit on committees involved in the direction of health information and clinical coding. They are involved in editing medical terminology textbooks, medical dictionaries and implementing changes to clinical coding conventions and practices. Education Services allocates an Education Officer to a group of students based on the number of enrolments per intake and the timetables selected by students. The role of the Education Officer is to lead students through the course and provide advice and guidance on all theory and practical elements. They are trained to provide targeted instruction to students according to their needs. Education Officers work closely together to maintain a high standard of training, assessment and feedback which ensures consistency of assessment methods and information given to students.
