Product Description

These modules are designed for participants who have mastered and are proficient in the fundamental skills required for safe and compliant sterile product preparation in a cleanroom environment and are now responsible for managing personnel and facilities associated with these compounding activities. Participants will recognize the many considerations required when developing competent personnel and designing appropriate environments and facilities for compliant sterile product preparation. After completing all of the modules, participants should be proficient in both basic compounding techniques and advanced concepts required for managing safe and compliant sterile product preparation in a cleanroom environment.

Practice exercises allow the learner to demonstrate knowledge learned and competency gained from completing the education modules.  Successful completion of the practice exercises is required to earn a professional certificate and is an additional step after completing the continuing education modules.
