Planning for Fall 2020 Remote Learning: Pharm Tech Program Resources
Join us for a free webinar to hear best practices from an educator who leaned on NHA’s product solutions as their programs shifted online this spring. You'll also see a live product demo from NHA’s resident pharmacy technician subject matter expert, Jeremy Sasser, BS, CPhT and get a sneak peek at the facilitator tools that are essential to online program success.
Effective Tuesday, May 19, NHA is excited to announce that LRP is now an available testing option for your candidates, allowing them to securely take NHA’s eight nationally accredited certification exams remotely from their homes.
With LRP, you can provide your candidates a safe, socially distanced testing option under the secure virtual supervision of a third party live remote proctor—provided by our partner, PSI—relieving your institution of the burden of proctoring or needing to wait for testing centers to re-open.
Candidates may begin registering for and scheduling their LRP exams if your institution is set up for LRP as a testing modality (see “Latest Updates” section below for details).
Helpful resources on LRP:
Since NHA received approval from our accrediting body, National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) to offer LRP during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working diligently to make this an option for your candidates.

Third Party Testing Centers/PSI Update
PSI is continuing to monitor the latest developments associated with the global spread of COVID-19. From the beginning of the outbreak, they have followed strict safety procedures in line with federal, state and local guidelines as well as guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the World Health Organization (WHO).
At all times, PSI’s top priority has been the health, safety and well-being of your candidates. They are making great strides in returning their solutions and services to normal.
As of June 23rd, 2020, PSI now has over 98% of its owned and operated testing centers opened. PSI posts the list of open sites on their website, however NHA wants to remind you and your candidates that the most accurate and up-to-date availability can be found via the scheduling tool in your NHA portal.
Rescheduling exams with PSI
Effective immediately, candidates can reschedule up to and including the day of testing at no penalty and no documentation required. NOTE: In most cases, candidates can reschedule their examinations on-line and they are encouraged to do so. If a candidate chooses to reschedule through PSI's candidate support call center, they may experience longer than usual wait times under the current circumstances.
