How to use this programme

Our e-courses are run online. You can take part in a tutor-supported version, which is normally held over a number of weeks, or access the learning materials at other times when the tutor-supported course is not running. The programme runs in CourseSites™ and you need to register with CPPE and CourseSites™ before you can take part.

Learn on your own: If you are not able to join the tutor-supported version of this programme, or would prefer to work through the learning materials on your own you can still access all the learning that is provided in the tutor-supported version. If you take this self-directed route you will not be able to engage with other pharmacists on the course or an online tutor, but you will have access to all the same high-quality materials that you can work through at a time an pace that suits you. You may only be able to take part in this option when we are not running the tutor-supported version of the course.
