Program Description:  The KPIC Aseptic Technique Training Program is an intensive certificate-based program designed to train pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and other health care professionals through immersive, hands-on training in the compounding of aseptic products. Learners will be provided training in aseptic technique, and objective evaluations of the preparation of Compounded Sterile Products (CSPs) according to USP <797> regulations will be conducted.  The training course employs didactic training, observation, coaching, and practical skill assessments.  The live session provides hands-on skills training focused on the current requirements and situations most likely to be encountered in a sterile compounding environment. Learners must successfully demonstrate competency via hands-on simulations in the state-of-the-art compounding facility.
