Pharmacy technician assessors needed

Would you like the opportunity to contribute to the growth of pharmacy technician practice? Are you interested in providing valuable feedback to your peers? If so, you may be just who we’re looking for! We’re recruiting pharmacy technicians to serve as assessors for the upcoming Continuing Competence Program (CCP) audit for pharmacy technicians.

As a CCP portfolio assessor, you will:

  • Attend a one-day training workshop in Edmonton on January 17, 2018
  • Audit CCP portfolios at your home via a secure online process

You may work at your own pace. Portfolios will be assigned to you in mid-February and then you’ll have until mid-April to submit your completed audits.

Qualifications

We're looking for pharmacy technicians who are able to demonstrate the principles of valid, fair, and reliable assessment and who can apply the grading procedure fairly and objectively.

Assessors must:

  • Be in good standing on the pharmacy technician register,
  • Have a minimum of one year of experience within the past three years, and
  • Not currently be, or have been, the subject of a disciplinary action or unresolved investigation.

Experience in assessment is not required, but is considered an asset.

Reimbursement

  • Contract rate of $29.50 per audit for online audits done at home
  • Per diem of $410 for the in-person training workshop
  • ACP will cover travel, accommodation, and meal expenses in accordance with council policy for the in-person meeting.

*These reflect 2017 rates and are subject to change as per council policy.

Other benefits of being a CCP portfolio assessor:

  • Develop your assessment skills
  • Learn more about different types of pharmacy technician practices
  • Contribute to your profession

How to apply

Complete and submit the online application by November 22, 2017. Only successful applicants will be contacted. If you haven’t been contacted by December 13, 2017, it means you were not selected. There will be other opportunities in the future!
