Collège Boréal's Pharmacy Technician training program has been granted full accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP).
The accreditation is valid for a five-year period.
The CCAPP is the organization responsible for the assessment of postsecondary pharmacy programs in Canada.
Constituted of representatives from all the Canadian associations involved in the pharmaceutical field, the CCAPP assures that every college and university program meets the standards in effect pertaining to the activities, staff and resources assigned to the provision of these training programs.
The certification process involves, among other things, a self-assessment of the program and visits by experts in the field of pharmacy.
“I especially want to acknowledge the remarkable determination and work of the team at Collège Boréal’s School of Health Sciences,” Collège Boréal president Denis Hubert-Dutrisac said, in a press release.
“With this full accreditation of our Pharmacy Technician program, Collège Boréal students enjoy a training that provides them with all the chances needed to become competent professionals whose diplomas will be recognized throughout the country.”
