Online Pharmacists Refresher Course

By Pharmacists, With Pharmacists, For Pharmacists

The Pharmacists Referesher Course is designed for pharmacists who wish to return to community practice after an absence for three or more years.  The course has 3 modules, all of which are approved for ACPE continuing education credits (home study).

The course assists pharmacists to re-enter the profession and receive updated information concerning new drug entities, new medical therapies that are affected by drug usage, new working conditions, new patient care services, computerization, demands of third party payers and new state and federal regulations.

The CPA has a relationship with Charter Oak College, our online education partner. Please visit their website for more information about these and other courses. The first two modules are offered as web courses through Charter Oak State College. The third module is an experiential externship centered around core competencies.

Those taking Mods 1 and 2 for personal enrichment will earn ACPE credits through the CPA. In addition, those who participate in all three modules will earn a certificate from Charter Oak State College.

For more information, please email CPA ( or call us at  (860) 563-4619.
