The Nation’s Most Affordable, Accessible & Scalable Immunization Administration Training Program
As COVID-19 and its variants continue to spread across the U.S. and pharmaceutical companies continue to distribute vaccinations, PRS has partnered with the National Pharmacy Technician Association (NPTA) to offer a program designed to rapidly train Pharmacy technicians to administer COVID-19 vaccines, childhood vaccines (to patients 3 to 18 years of age), and the seasonal influenza vaccine (to patients 19 years and older).
This new program, developed by NPTA under the guidance of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is expected to train hundreds of thousands of Pharmacy technicians within the next few weeks to help quickly distribute this much needed vaccine.
The ACPE Accredited training modules cover:
- Vaccine Preventable Diseases
- Pharmacy-Based Immunization Services
- Storage and Handling of Vaccine Inventory and Supplies
- Vaccine Administration
- Vaccine Safety and Vaccine Adverse Events
- Increase Awareness of Immunization Services
- Vaccine Administration Hands-On Training and Skills Assessment
Affordable: NPTA’s program offers a site license that includes training for an unlimited number of technicians through the end of 2021.
Accessible: There’s no need for a regional/district manager to travel to each store, attending a live seminar or even pre-scheduled Zoom calls. The entire program is able to be accessed and completed on your own time online. We’re even providing an online “train the trainer” program to ensure your site administrator is prepared for guiding the hands-on-training and skills validations.
Scalable: Whether you have one location or 50, our custom online learning management system has the capability to support training your entire staff, with both store level and corporate level admin access.
Efficient: Technicians enrolled in the program are required to complete 7 hours of coursework: 5 hours online +2 hours of hands on training, including two skill validations. Your staff can be trained and prepared to begin administering vaccines within days.
ACPE-Accredited: Developed with HHS guidance under the PREP Act, the program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) for 7 contact hours.
