Enrollment in this course is strictly limited to inspectors for State Boards of Pharmacy or personnel from State Departments of Health who inspect sterile compounding pharmacies.
The Sterile Compounding Inspector Training (SCIT) covers the USP requirements for nonhazardous and hazardous sterile compounding. The virtual live program offers 23.5 live CE hours where inspectors will gain an understanding of the “whys” behind the “whats” of USP 797 and USP 800. They will also be exposed to some of CriticalPoint Best Practices. The faculty have demonstrated expertise in running sterile compounding operations and are expert trainers. Aside from the program lectures, participants are provided with many valuable CriticalPoint tools that will be shared and used throughout the class.
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) has partnered with CriticalPoint to provide the annual Sterile Compounding Inspector Training (SCIT). NABP offers one scholarship to each state to offset the cost associated with this valuable training. The virtual live SCIT training eliminates travel costs and still provides the same engaging and dynamic curriculum but does so over 7 sessions (from 10 am to 3:30 pm EASTERN) scheduled over 3 weeks. Inspectors miss less time away from work and have more time to integrate the new information, since the sessions are spaced out.
This particular SCIT virtual live course will be held October 19, 21, 23, 26, 28, 30 and November 2. Please access the agenda using the link below for specific content, times, and learning objectives.
