Tip of the Week – What is Non-Accredited Learning?


Non-accredited learning includes any learning activity related to pharmacy practice that has NOT been accredited for pharmacy technicians or the accreditation has expired. A completed learning record is required for all non-accredited learning.

Examples of non-accredited learning:
• Online programs, courses, or presentations that have not gone through the accreditation process or the accreditation has expired
• Structured learning activities accredited for another health professional (e.g., programs that have been accredited for pharmacists, nurses, dental assistants) as long as its pertinent to your practice
• Informal, independent learning activities such as reading, research, or discussing practice issues with colleagues
