CriticalPoint’s Core Skills for Nonhazardous, Sterile to Sterile Compounding Training is a two-and-a-half- day program designed as the fundamental and initial offering of the CriticalPoint Sterile Boot Camp® Live Training Series. This course is suitable for those who manage or perform sterile compounding as well as for others who may be involved with the sterile compounding industry. The “Core Skills” class builds a comprehensive understanding of regulatory requirements as well as best practices for nonhazardous, sterile to sterile compounding. It covers both the current USP <797> requirements (2008 version) as well as probable 2019 chapter requirements.
Once registered, participants are provided access to selected CriticalPoint eLessons to complete before beginning the live training. Once onsite, learners participate in engaging lectures and valuable labs designed to amplify important information from the lectures as well as practice new skills. The course is held at the CriticalPoint Center for Training and Research (CCTR) which has a state of the art classroom as well as two ISO 7 buffer rooms, and ISO 8 anteroom, a C-SCA and a large variety of primary engineering controls. Topics include: contamination control (hand hygiene and garbing, material handling and conduct in sterile compounding environments); primary and secondary engineering control function, design and certification; sanitization; environmental monitoring and personnel sampling; compounding documentation; staff training and quality assurance and control for sterile compounding. Please refer to the learning objectives for more detailed information.
Attendees will gain an understanding of the “whys” behind the “whats” of USP <797> and CriticalPoint Best Practices. The faculty have demonstrated expertise in running sterile compounding operations. Aside from the program lectures, participants are provided with many valuable CriticalPoint tools and environmental monitoring SOP and form templates that may be used as a basis for their own facility practice. After completing the CriticalPoint Core Skills training, participants may elect to take additional, more specialized CriticalPoint live training such as:
• Best Practice Considerations for Handling Hazardous Drugs
• Environmental Monitoring Certificate Program
• Aseptic Technique Refresher (with “Core Skills” as part of the QP503A Certification)
• Best Practices for Nonsterile to Sterile Compounding
The course includes 8 hours of Home Study eLearning Continuing Education and 18.5 hour of Live Continuing Education.
