The Concept

2018 Q4 Newsletter

The new SNOMED CT Authoring Level 1 Course is now open for enrolment in March and September 2019! 

This course teaches you the knowledge and skills needed to perform basic SNOMED CT authoring tasks. It also prepares you for the SNOMED CT Authoring Level 1 certification exam, which is being introduced later in 2019. Students will have the opportunity to learn and practice authoring tasks using a training version of SNOMED International's authoring platform. Authoring exercises will be performed in a fictitious extension known as the 'SNOMED Land extension'.

The course is delivered through five modules, each with a series of online presentations and videos, a tutor-led webinar, and an online assessment. The course requires approximately seventy hours of study, and follows a fixed schedule over five months. For more information, please refer to the SNOMED CT Authoring Level 1 Course Guide.

The SNOMED CT Authoring Level 1 Course costs $500 USD for Members and $1,000 USD for non-Members. Additional discounts apply to students from low/middle income countries and those who have successfully completed the Content Development Theory Course. Please note that places in this course are limited, so please enrol early to avoid missing out.
