This comprehensive training series will discuss CDISC requirements to create SDTMs and ADaMs. It will also offer essential mapping and strategy concepts for creating and validating SDTM and ADaM variables in key CDISC datasets (DM, AE, ADSL, and ADAE). The five-part training program will each focus on different areas of CDISC mapping, including: a review and comparison of SDTM and ADaM dataset structures, a mapping plan from raw datasets to SDTM to ADaM datasets, key differences between SDTM and ADaM models and process flows, key differences between the seven CDISC classes, best practices to create Dataset.XML from SAS, and more.

The flexible program module allows participants to choose any or all trainings. Participants will be trained on utilizing metadata to automatically assign variable attributes in SDTMs and ADaMs, understand the structure and syntax of ODM-XML files, and gain a clear understanding of the nine steps to SDTM mapping and seven steps to ADaM mapping. The sessions will also encourage participants to effectively create and process ISO8601 dates, paired lab variables, as well as impart lab visit window techniques, and effective techniques for using PROC TRANSPOSE to create and merge SUPPXX datasets with SDTMs to create ADAMs.
