IHTSDO is currently working to develop a full training program related to SNOMED CT through our E-Learning Center. The materials available here will eventually be organized into courses with the first of these in place late in 2014. However as additional presentations and assessments will be added to the E-Learning Center every month. 

IHTSDO currently runs two annual mentoring schemes for more advanced training. 

  • The SNOMED Implementation Advisor (SIA) scheme (intended for those wishing to support implementation of SNOMED CT)  [next call for applications November 2014 for Jan/Feb 2015 start]
  • The Consultant Terminologist Program (CTP - related to SNOMED CT content design and development). [next call for applications to be confirmed but likely to be second quarter 2015]

In the meantime the key recommended resource for initial understanding of SNOMED CT is the SNOMED CT Starter Guide http://snomed.org/starterguide.pdf. A range of other documents are also available from the SNOMED CT Document Library. Also keep an eye on the E-Learning Center to find out about the development of our education program.
