AMSPAR and City & Guilds work together to provide qualifications recognised by Ofqual for the sector.
A range of qualifications are offered.
Medical terminology is at the heart of healthcare, whether NHS or private and is used in every specialty. If you are a secretary, receptionist, manager or, indeed, employed in any administrative grade, the chances are that you will need a good grasp of medical terminology to do your job effectively.
This well-respected award is suitable for those working in health care who wish to add a medical terminology qualification to their skills and knowledge or for individuals thinking about changing career direction.
Since 1998 our medical terminology certificate has become increasingly popular and, with a pass mark of 75%, represents real ability in medical terminology. It is a widely recognised qualification and would be a rewarding addition to your skills and qualifications.
The AMSPAR Level 3 Certificate in Medical Terminology is accredited by Ofqual and is listed in the Qualifications and Credit Framework (14 credits). This means that it is eligible for public funding through the Learning and Skills Council.
Exams are held in February, May and November to allow candidates to sit them at a time most convenient to them.
AMSPAR can provide a booklet (see FAQs) which contains a reading list and sample parts of examination questions. It also contains the aims and objectives of the qualification.
