The Dispensing Academy (Technical Certificate Equivalent) is designed primarily for Dispensing Assistants, who are interested in furthering their Continuing Professional Development but who are not ready to commit to the full Technical Certificate.
Membership of the Dispensing Academy (Technical Certificate Equivalent) is free and gives the learner access to a variety of correspondence courses issued in a unit form. Multiple choice questions and assignments are returned to Buttercups Training for assessment or completed online. If the learner chooses to complete a multiple choice assessment online, they will receive immediate feedback on completion of the test. All units can be purchased separately.
Learners who progress to the full Technical Certificate delivered by Buttercups Training can have their Academy work accredited.
Accreditation of prior learning towards the Technical Certificate must be undertaken prior to three years after completion.
