In-Person Assessment:

Participants are required to attend an in-person session to complete their injection assessment. During the session, you will be supervised and assessed by a trained injection assessor. The assessor will observe you demonstrating both intramuscular and subcutaneous injections on a partner and your partner will, in turn, demonstrate on your arm. 

Most of these sessions are held in Toronto from September to March, with additional dates and locations offered based on demand. Sessions may range from 2 to 4 hours in length, depending on the number of participants. 

After registering for the course, you may sign-up for the upcoming assessment sessions listed below, on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact [email protected] before registering if you have questions about specific session availability.

Course at a Glance:

Who Should Take This Course:

The Injections Training Certificate Program for Pharmacy Technicians is a two-part series designed to support pharmacy technicians in the administration of injections for Covid-19, influenza, and RSV injections (in defined conditions) in Ontario.

This course is restricted to pharmacy technician students. Not a pharmacy technician student? Pharmacy technicians can enroll here.

Please note that participants who achieve a letter of completion may state that they hold a continuing education certificate in the Injection Training Certificate Program for Pharmacy Technicians. This does not grant authority to administer injections as such authority is granted by legislation through each healthcare professional’s own regulatory college. For more information, please see OCP’s website here.
