Course Description

CPE is working to accommodate all injection training needs, while keeping the safety of those involved of highest priority under the current circumstances.

To complete your registration in this program you must also register for the Administration of Injections workshop.


To ensure that pharmacists in the Maritime Provinces are able to offer immunization and injection services to patients, Dalhousie (Dal) Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) is offering an Immunization and Injection Administration Refresher Program (IIARP).

The IIARP has been developed to address the current need for pharmacist recertification.

Requirements for successful completion of the IIARP

Participants must provide proof of successful completion of an immunization and injection education and training program.

Participants must register through Dal CPE to attend the IIARP course

During the IIARP course, participants will be required to administer one subcutaneous injection and one intramuscular injection to a partner using proper techniques under the direct supervision of an IIATP certifier.

Recognition of completion of the IIARP

Participants will receive a Record of Completion after the satisfactory administration of both injections. Participants must then notify their provincial regulatory authority of their successful completion of the IIARP, and apply for a Drug Administration Permit. 

Program details

Participants will be given access to the on-line materials to review before coming to their session. On the day of recertification, participants will be provided with necessary supplies (i.e. needles, syringes, practice injection pads, etc.) and time to practice required skills. Trained certifiers from Dal CPE’s IIATP will provide guidance and answer questions regarding any aspect of the injection/immunization process.  There will be no formal review of the IIATP online modules or IIATP workshop content.  It is anticipated that all participants will have reviewed pertinent materials from IIATP, NACI, the Public Health Agency of Canada, etc., as determined by their own needs and/or by their provincial regulatory body, prior to attending the re-certification session.


Please allow up to 3 business days from the time of registration for your registration to process.  You will be contacted via email with your login information as soon as you are able to access the online modules associated with your program.
