Training Location: 621 Jealouse Way #109 Cedar Hill, TX 75104

This program offers home-study and hands-on training for pharmacy technicians and pharmacy technician trainees who compound sterile preparations and all pharmacists who compound sterile preparations or supervise those who compound sterile preparations. Instruction is provided in proper aseptic technique, pharmaceutical calculations, hazardous drug handling, quality assurance, USP compounding regulations, related accreditation standards and government mandates. Successful completion of the course provides 20 hours of ACPE accredited CE for pharmacists and 40 hours for pharmacy technicians.

Pharmacy Education Resources (PER) “National Sterile Compounding Training Manual for Pharmacy Technicians” is a 40 hour ACPE accredited program available to technicians. The goal of this required manual is to provide the technician with advanced information beyond the general basis of knowledge concerning sterile pharmaceutical products. This manual provides basic knowledge to develop an understanding of concepts, techniques, and procedures related to the preparation of sterile and hazardous pharmaceutical products obtained from USP 795, 797, 800, 1163 and 1176. A set of 9 “Process Validation Checklists” have been included. This Checklist plus an additional 20 hours of Hands-on Supervised Practice are required when evaluating the reader’s ability to actually demonstrate sterile technique. Most state boards of pharmacy require process validation at least annually.
