Pharmaceutical Compounding Training Courses

Pharmaceutical compounding courses are scheduled throughout the year at our national training facility, which features hands-on, practice-based instruction in fully-functional standard and sterile labs.  Additional classes are offered at Concordia University Wisconsin and Columbia Central University, Puerto Rico.  Online CE Home Study programs and ACA Compound Academy (for pharmacy school students and recent graduates), and Customized On-Site Training are also available.

Advantages of ACA training include:

  • Practical, hands-on approach to learning
  • Participants use APIs for more accurate compounding experience
  • Small class sizes and personal attention from instructors
  • Unbiased presentation featuring multiple product lines and equipment
  • Updated content to reflect the latest developments in compounding.

Compounding courses allow pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and marketers to further their knowledge and provide support for pharmacies interested in adding product lines in order to expand business and better serve their patients and communities. Membership is not required for registration: however, Fellows and members of the ACA receive discounts on educational opportunities.


ACA’s instructors bring real-world experience and insights into the classroom and provide technical and marketing experience. Click here for instructor bios. All classes taught at ACA National Training Center in Bartlett, Tennessee unless otherwise indicated.


Special promotional pricing will be automatically applied to all registrations completed six weeks before the beginning of class. No code necessary; does not apply to pharmacy student fees, EVP, or ACA Compound Academy. The best value in compounding training just got a little better.

I am interested in on-site training!
