Dual Accreditation Fee Policy

A Dual Accreditation is the accreditation of a learning activity for both pharmacists and technicians, if relevant to both their practices.

They may be deemed the same learning activity if the content of the learning activity is the same or almost the same (i.e., less than 5% to 15%, depending on the number of CEUs, of the content is different).

To obtain a dual accreditation, the provider must submit two applications. The CCCEP accreditation number contains a "P" for pharmacist activities and a "T" for technician activities.

  • First, submit the application for accreditation for either Pharmacists or Technicians; and
  • Then, submits the application for accreditation for the other pharmacy professional.

Fee Waiver/Incentive

The accreditation fee for the second accreditation is waived for regular reviews

If submitted as a Fast Track, there is a 30% reduction in the Fast Track Surcharge for the second application.

Providers are asked to contact CCCEP prior to submitting an activity for Dual Accreditation.
