ASHP recently released the Sterile Product Preparation Institutional Training Certificate Program, a resource that allows institutions to train students and employees in the fundamental concepts required for safe and compliant sterile product preparation. The Sterile Product Preparation Institutional Training Program Certificate Program is the latest offering in ASHP’s Professional Certificate line.


The Sterile Product Preparation Institutional Training Certificate Program can be used by hospitals, colleges of pharmacy, and pharmacy technician training programs as stand-alone education or as a supplement to its existing education and training programs. The curriculum features eight modules designed to highlight the importance of aseptic processing and help pharmacists and pharmacy technicians develop the knowledge and skills necessary for safe and compliant sterile product preparation:

  1. Evolution and Overview of Aseptic Processing
  2. Core Competencies and Facilities Basics
  3. Sterile Product Categorization
  4. The Basics All Cleanroom Personnel Need to Know
  5. Primary Engineering Controls
  6. Compounding Basics in Laminar Airflow Systems
  7. Secondary Engineering Controls
  8. Navigating Equipment and Workflow Until the Final Check

Available for institutional purchase only, the Sterile Product Preparation Institutional Training Certificate Program enables an institution to review and approve learners for the certificate. To earn the professional certificate, participants must complete all eight modules and successfully demonstrate proficiency in aseptic technique under the supervision of the institution’s ASHP-approved administrator.


Participants will earn up to 17.25 hours of pharmacy continuing education credits for completing the program. The program offers three professional certificate options: Student, Low Risk, and Medium Risk.


Each program offers at least 15 hours of continuing education credit that can be earned upon completion of individual modules. Participants must complete all of the modules in a program as well as practice-based exercises to be eligible for an ASHP professional certificate.
