“Our Pharmacy trained all of our technicians to administer immunizations one evening after the pharmacy closed. We signed all of our techs up at one time and worked with CEimpact to choose an evening where 2 of our pharmacists could be there to help support our team through the CEimpact-led training (done over Zoom). By the end of the night all of our technicians were trained, and we felt comfortable in their abilities since we witnessed their technique assessment. The whole process took about 2 weeks, start to finish. If you are looking for a turnkey way to train your technicians AND feel confident in their skills, I highly recommend the CEimpact training. "

"The CEimpact Immunization Administration Program for Technicians addresses all the fundamental and technical skills required for a pharmacy technician to safely and accurately provide an immunization. Specifically, the flexibility of content delivery has proven to be the preferred certification program for my area."

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can serve as my Healthcare Buddy?

Pharmacists: A pharmacist or another healthcare professional who is certified to immunize can serve as your Healthcare Buddy. 

Pharmacy Technicians: Your Healthcare Buddy must be a pharmacist immunizer and they must attend the live workshop with you.

 

You will be required to administer two immunizations containing normal saline to your Healthcare Buddy using proper immunization administration technique in order to complete the full course and receive your certificate of completion.

If your Healthcare Buddy prefers to not receive the injections, another volunteer may receive the injections instead. However, your Healthcare Buddy will still need to be present with you to observe the demonstration of the two injections.
