Improve your chances for success with the National Certification On-Line Review Course.

The Certification Review Course will thoroughly prepare you for the challenges of the National Certification Exam. The Certification Exam tests over many different areas of Pharmacy, so if you have never worked in a hospital, or have only worked in retail, we will prepare you to answer questions about other practice settings. The program offers great flexibility - you may log in to your course from any computer with an internet connection!

The course includes review of the following topics.

  • Pharmacology Review - Pharmacology can be an intimidating subject, but not when you are reading our material! Every section is written in easy-to-understand language. You will study side effects, drug interactions, mechanisms of action and other important information about major drug classifications.

  • Pharmacy Calculations - The National focuses heavily on math and because of this, the Calculations Review by itself is worth the price of this course! Most Pharmacy Technicians are not confident in their ability to perform difficult Pharmacy Calculations. Teaching calculations is definitely our specialty! The Course begins at the VERY beginning and gives you complete explanations and easy-to-follow sample problems for each math skill you need to learn. Then, we complete your training with lots and lots of homework problems.

  • Miscellaneous Pharmacy Topics - There are so many areas of Pharmacy to study that we have put together a "Miscellaneous Topics" section for our students. Don't get caught without information on Pharmacy Law, Pregnancy Restrictions, Extemporaneous and IV Compounding, Medication Storage Requirements, Pharmacy Reference Books, DEA and NDC Numbers and so much more!

  • Support - You have access to your course from ANY computer with an internet connection. Study at a local library, a friend's house or from the comfort of your own home! Have a question?
