After careful consideration for the safety of our training class participants, instructors, and staff, the American College of Apothecaries resumed in-person training classes on June 4. ACA followed local public health guidelines to develop the following protocols.

Our top priority is providing the best training opportunities for pharmacy professionals in the safest environment for employees, instructors, participants, and the community.

Our safety protocols include:

  • Daily health screening upon entrance to facility for all class participants and staff
  • Limiting visitors to facility and lowering class size
  • Allowing staff to telework and informing staff not to come to work if sick
  • Enforcing six-foot distancing for all individuals throughout facility
  • Dedicated workspaces for class participants during compounding training courses, including classroom and lab areas
  • Providing masks to every individual
  • Providing hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes to all visitors, class participants and staff at facility entrance, in bathrooms, breakroom, training room, and labs
  • Offices, bathrooms, breakroom, and lab are cleaned and disinfected daily
  • Additional measures will be taken throughout the facility to prevent unnecessary contact between individuals

Customized On-Site Compounding Training

Your Site. Your Staff. Your Schedule

The ACA can present any of the current compounding training courses or business management training on location, or design a custom class (with or without CE) to meet a pharmacy’s needs.


This live and/or web-based course will offer a practical look at marketing and sales strategies to grow and expand the independent compounding pharmacy, both routinely and in response to challenges.

Marketers, pharmacists, and technicians will participate in an interactive course, including lecture, hands-on activities, and roundtable discussions. Attendees will learn the roles that social media, creative collateral, and branding play in successful growth. From creating a personalized marketing “toolbox,” to getting past the gatekeeper, to effective provider communication (even on Zoom!) this course will equip attendees to grow their current compounding business and to measure success.

With Keri’s more than two decades of experience in compounding and marketing, she will lead this fun, interactive course to prepare the attendee for the “real world” of provider and patient education. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to gain new, creative tactics to enhance your marketing efforts, while networking with your marketing peers! 

Our low instructor/participant ratio allows for individual attention and interaction. The program is structured to demonstrate skills that can be immediately implemented by participants.
