JUST FOR STUDENTS
Our intensive 2-day hands-on course is designed specifically for pharmacy students who want to learn more about the exciting field of pharmaceutical compounding. Building on the content typically found in pharmacy school, this course will expand your knowledge of the art and science of pharmaceutical compounding with an emphasis on quality, best practices, and current laws and regulations. We limit our classes to only 12 students, ensuring a low student:teacher ratio and maximizing your opportunity to learn. Training will be held at the ACA National Training Laboratory in Bartlett, Tennessee. At only $275, ACA Compound Academy is an affordable option for pharmacy students and recent graduates.
We’ll get you into the lab quickly to put your learning into practice!
We’ve moved three of our lectures to pre-course work that you’ll complete before your first day. After a brief review and overview of lab safety and personal protection, you’ll begin your hand-on training in our USP lab. You’ll learn a wide range of dosage forms, including:
• Medicated Sticks
We include job-ready skills to give you the edge when you’re looking for employment. You’ll learn how to evaluate a patient case to determine the best compounded dosage form and how to provide patient education. The course will cover non-sterile compounding documentation, calculations, quality control, and labeling requirements that you’ll need to know when working in a compounding pharmacy.

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.
Funding for this class was made possible in part through an unrestricted grant-in-aid from Letco Medical LLC.
COMPREHENSIVE STERILE COMPOUNDING is a 3-day, 20-hour practice-based course designed for pharmacists and technicians who are experienced in compounding. Completion of the Fundamental Compounding & Calculations Course is recommended, but not required. Physicians and other healthcare professionals are welcome to attend. 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.
The attendee must pass an aseptic glove test and a media fill to successfully complete the course.
An optional Sterile Compounding: USP Chapter Home Study is also available and provides an additional 20 CE hours of sterile compounding training for technicians and pharmacists.
