Hear from others who have taken our courses.

Jean-Paul Bédard on the Health Care in Canada course

Health Care in Canada is a must have learning guide for everyone in the Pharmaceutical community”

Richard Michalenko on the Evidence-Based Medicine course

“I encourage you to consider CCPE’s Evidence-Based Medicine course and its new blended approach to learning. This should enable you to Reach New Heights in your credibility.”

Ashram Mustapha – Primary Care Sales

“The CCPE has had an impact on me in giving me a general overview of the industry I joined over 25 years ago—and has served as a foundation of knowledge I have used throughout my sales and marketing career. When needed, I have had the privilege of finding courses directly applicable to areas I have or wanted to be working in, such as “The Access Environment in Canada”. Having a standardized body of knowledge offered by the CCPE has enhanced my knowledge and effectiveness as both a staff member and a manager.”

Heather MacCuaig on the Accreditation Course

“8 years ago I entered this industry with a business degree. While I was confident that I would succeed in the territory management aspect to my new sales role, it was this course that provided me with the utmost confidence that I would also be capable of meeting the medical needs of my healthcare professionals. I’ll never forget when 1 of my physicians told me that his daughter had taken the same accreditation course in hopes of becoming a sales rep, that he had perused its contents, and that he concluded it was the equivalent of 1st year medicine! I left that conversation with a deep sense of pride and achievement. This course still serves me well in both my internal and external stakeholder relations and am I glad that it is still a requirement to securing a commercial role in pharmaceuticals in Canada.”

Rhonda Kramarchuk on The Accreditation Course

Medical Representative

When I made the decision to pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry, I started researching companies and applying for jobs. I often found myself as a finalist in the the interview process but couldn’t make it as the final candidate. It was one professional recruiter that took the time to tell me about CCPE and the mandatory accreditation for all representatives. He suggested that I take the initiative on my own and take the course. It was unheard of at the time but I soon became a top candidate and was offered my 1st pharmaceutical representative position approximately 4 months after completing my CCPE basic accreditation. I have since taken an additional 10 CCPE courses in the various therapeutic fields I have worked in, to increase my knowledge and to become a better representative of my products, my companies, and of the industry as a whole.
