The Concept

2019 Q1 Newsletter

As 13 budding SNOMED CT authors graduated from our pilot intake of the SNOMED CT Authoring Level 1 course, 34 new authoring students commenced our first official AL1 intake in March 2019. This course is designed to teach the knowledge and skills needed to perform basic SNOMED CT authoring tasks. It also prepares students for the SNOMED CT Authoring Level 1 certification exam (coming mid 2019).

Feedback from the pilot has been very positive, with students loving the hands-on practical exercises on our training authoring platform. Some great suggestions on how to improve the course for future intakes have also been received. Comments included:
  • "It was indeed a great learning experience doing this course."
  • "It was practical and I learnt a lot more about SNOMED"
  • "I really enjoyed the opportunity to practice authoring on the authoring platform"
  • "My congratulations to you and your colleagues in developing such a good course!"
