We strive to provide affordable access to high-quality continuing education programs, related to sterile compounding for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and others who are practicing in a sterile compounding environment and/or who are designated as responsible for the performance of a sterile compounding facility. Our programs are based on current regulatory guidelines specified by USP <797> and USP <800> standards.
Participants, who satisfactorily complete a program, receive a certificate of completion,
as well as ACPE CE credits. Certificate of completion courses may include a home study
component that is completed by the participant prior to attending a workshop. Live
one or two-day workshops provide the practical application of the current USP standards.
The workshops emphasize “hands-on” practice at an individual level in a state-of-the-art
sterile compounding training facility, as well as, completion of core competencies
based on current USP standards.

Practical Compliance with USP Chapters <797> and <800> is an updated course geared towards individuals who are responsible for ensuring compliance with the USP Compounding Standards.
The training is based on the current USP 797 version and current best practices. Where applicable, the training program provides a comparison of the differences between the currently enforceable chapter of USP 797 (2008), the 2019 release that was remanded back to the Expert Committee, resulting in the current proposed publication in 2021.

The target audience includes pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and others who are practicing in a sterile compounding environment and/or who are designated as responsible for the performance of a sterile compounding facility.
