Pharmacy Technicians: Check out your new Continuing Competence Program (CCP)

January 13, 2016

The Continuing Competence Program for pharmacy technicians is now available! All program materials are available in the CCP portal and can be accessed using your ACP registration number and password. Pharmacy technicians have until November 30, 2016 to complete the program requirements, including:

  1. Prescribed activities:
  2. Continuing Competence Program (CCP) tutorial
  3. Jurisprudence Self-Assessment
  4. Learning activities – Complete at least 15 CEUs during the CE cycle (December 1, 2015 to November 30, 2016) and document each activity on a Learning Record
     
  5. Implementation of learning – Implement a minimum of one CEU worth of learning into your practice and document this on an Implementation Record (you only need to complete one record)

To help you become familiar with the competence program requirements, we have developed a CCP tutorial that provides an in-depth look at the program. We recommend completing the tutorial first, available in the Self-Assessment/Prescribed Activities section of the CCP portal.

Pilot program participant feedback:

  • “The program is focused on helping pharmacy technicians improve their practice by developing professionally. The portal is easy to use and contains all the information needed to achieve the program's objectives.”
  • “I am very happy to see all of the tools and resources available to assist Technicians with their portfolios each year. It seems to me that any question I could come up with has an explanation or answer.”
  • “After completing [the tutorial], I feel confident in my ability to accurately complete each learning and implementation record.”
