5. After the Exam

Within one month of sitting the certification exam, you will be notified as to whether or not you have passed your Authoring Level 1 Certification.

Please be aware that we do not provide individual exam results or feedback (whether or not you have passed)

If you are successful in passing the Authoring Level 1 Certification Exam, an electronic version of your certificate will be available on the E-Learning platform. 

  • SNOMED International has established an Authoring Level 1 Certification Register (at http://snomed.org/al1cert) to acknowledge those individuals who have successfully achieved and retained their Authoring Level 1 Certification, and to allow the SNOMED community to be aware of this achievement. 

    • On successfully passing the Certification Exam, if you would like to be added to this public register, please login to your Confluence account and complete the consent form

If you are not successful in passing the Authoring Level 1 Certification Exam:

  • You may re-enrol in the certification exam at most once within 12 months of completing your first attempt.
  • To re-enrol in the certification exam, please visit the SNOMED CT course catalogue. Full payment is required for re-enrolment.
  • Before resitting this exam, we strongly recommend that you review and practice those authoring level 1 competencies that you found difficult during the exam.
  • If you fail the certification exam twice within 12 months, then prior to re-enrolling in the exam you must either (a) enrol (or re-enrol) in the relevant SNOMED International preparation course and successfully complete this course, or (b) wait a further 12 months after the most recent attempt before re-enrolling in the certification exam.
