Product Description 

This self-guided, online program serves as a preparatory course for pharmacists planning to sit for the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Board Certified Sterile Compounding Pharmacist (BCSCP) certification examination. 

The program provides 38 hours of ACPE continuing education for pharmacists, incorporating recorded presentations, readings, video demonstrations, and exercises in curricular modules. The program covers sterile product preparation practice standards and regulations, pharmacy calculations, facilities and engineering controls, environmental monitoring, cleanroom personnel behaviors, sterile compounding components and procedures, stability and sterility, beyond-use date assignment, nonsterile to sterile compounding, hazardous drugs, managing products until final check or disposal, patient care, and overall quality management. After completing all of the modules, participants should be proficient in both basic compounding techniques and advanced skills required to lead and manage safe and compliant sterile product preparation in a cleanroom environment.

Professional Certificate Requirement 

Once a learner has successfully completed the educational curriculum, he/she has the opportunity to complete a 125-question comprehensive exam. If the learner successfully completes the exam (minimum 80% passing rate; multiple attempts permitted), he/she earns a professional certificate. The exam is an additional step after completing the continuing education modules.
