Education Videos

The pre-Edition training material for ICD-10-AM Tenth Edition is delivered in the form of a series of videos accessible through the ACCD Tenth Edition education site.

These videos are presented using the MP4 file type as it is now the most widely utilised file format for creating and playing videos.

While almost every browser will successfully play MP4 videos, some local setup issues may be encountered, and require updates such as the Silverlight plug-in. In that case, please contact your manager or IT department in the first instance. For information on IT requirements, please refer to the document IT-Specifications.pdf available on the website.
