FUNDAMENTAL COMPOUNDING & CALCULATIONS is a 3-day, 21-hour practice-based course designed for pharmacists, technicians, marketers, and students who are new to compounding or who have had training in the past, but want a refresher. Physicians and other health care professionals are welcome to attend. This hands-on course focuses on the proper preparation of fundamental dosage forms utilized by pharmacies that are compounding medications for their patients. Participants will learn through pharmacy calculation practice, lectures, and hands-on laboratory training in a fully equipped USP 795 lab. Our low instructor/participant ratio allows for individual attention and interaction. The program is structured to demonstrate skills that can be immediately implemented by participants.
COMPREHENSIVE STERILE COMPOUNDING is a 3-day, 20-hour practice-based course designed for pharmacists and technicians who are experienced in compounding.

Participants are instructed in the proper technique preparation, and quality control tests for sterile products, such as validation testing, membrane filtration, pyrogen tests, BET (bacterial endotoxin test), and others. Participants work in a simulated sterile environment in a 795 lab; on the final day, cleanroom exercises and a high-risk media fill will be conducted in a true 797 lab.
This course will include the USP guidelines, proper hand washing, and garbing. The curriculum will prepare attendees for anticipated changes to USP.
