The Pharmacy Technician Bridging Program has been introduced by the Alberta College of Pharmacists (ACP) to assist Pharmacy Technicians currently working in the profession to meet new regulatory requirements and expanded scope of practice.
In order to receive credit from ACP for the bridging courses, applicants must meet the eligibility criteria as outlined on the ACP website.
Pharmacy Technician Bridging Courses can be taken on their own or as a part of the Pharmacy Technician Professional Transition Certificate program.
The Professional Transition Certificate provides an opportunity for Pharmacy Technicians to boost their employability by supplementing Pharmacy Technician bridging courses with valuable knowledge and training in our world-class pharmacy lab. This program is best suited for practicing Pharmacy Technicians preparing to meet regulatory requirements or registered Pharmacy Technicians aspiring to transition into sterile production or business management roles.
