LIVONIA, Mich. — Online healthcare and IT certification training school MedCerts is partnering with the Michigan Pharmacists Association for an effort that it says will bring higher-level training to pharmacy technicians. The partnership will offer state associations across the United States discounted access to online training for members to achieve certification goals, MedCerts said.

“We are excited to partner with the MedCerts team,” Michigan Pharmacists Association COO Dianne Malburg said.  “Since 2009, MedCerts has had a strong track record of developing and delivering best-in-class training programs. This was reinforced in July when MedCerts earned nationally-recognized accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists /Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education for their Pharmacy Technician program. Our partnership will bring an innovative approach to technician training, and add significant value to other state associations.”

The partnership will bring discounts for the ASHP/ACPE accredited Pharmacy Technician Professional program and the Certified Pharmacy Technician program to state pharmacy associations around the country, the companies said. MedCerts said the goal is to increase the number of certified pharmacy technicians in the United States.

“We are very proud of our success in improving training initiatives in the Pharmacy industry,” MedCerts director of corporate development Domenic Policicchio said. “Our goal is simple: we want to broaden accessibility to technician training (ASHP/ACPE) and certify more technicians. This partnership brings an enormous amount of support and industry knowledge, with goals that align seamlessly. We are honored to be partnering with one of the most influential Associations in the country.”
