CSP Certificate Program

ASHP

ASHP recently launched a compounded sterile preparations certificate program. As part of the Professional Certificate line, this program will serve as the preparatory course for pharmacists pursuing the Board of Pharmacy Specialties’ (BPS) Board Certified Sterile Compounding Pharmacist (BCSCP) certification. In a self-guided, online continuing education program, pharmacists can be trained on basic compounding techniques and the advanced skills required to lead and manage safe, compliant sterile preparation in a cleanroom environment.

The curriculum features 16 educational modules that correlate to the domains tested by BPS. The course covers practice standards and regulations, including current and proposed requirements for compliance with USP Chapters <797> and <800>. The program also provides training in the design, construction, and maintenance of compounding facilities; cleanroom personnel behaviors; sterile compounding components and procedures; stability and sterility; nonsterile to sterile compounding; hazardous drugs; managing products until final check or disposal; quality management; and patient care.

Participants will earn up to 38 hours of pharmacy continuing education credits. To receive the professional certificate, participants must successfully complete all of the modules and receive a score of 80% or higher on a comprehensive examination.
