What is S2/S3 Medicines Training?
S2/S3 Medicines Training refers to the nationally accredited unit Support the Supply of Pharmacy Medicines and Pharmacist only Medicines Course (SIRCHCS201). It is a unit that contains information necessary for pharmacy and dispensary assistants to understand Schedule 2 (S2) and Schedule 3 (S3) products. It can be completed through our eLearning website, a hard copy workbook, or a Face-to-Face session.
All three methods follow a similar process. The primary difference between the three is the delivery method:
Please note that at least six students are required for a face-to-face session. If you are interested in organising a session, please contact Learning and Development on the below number.
After one of these three methods is selected by the learner, an oral assessment and Supervisor’s Evidence Report (SER) must be completed. SERs are included in the workbook, or can be downloaded on the left hand side of this page. Oral assessments can also be organised by pressing the button to the left side of the screen, or by calling Learning and Development using the below number.
Pharmacy Assistants gain the skills and knowledge to handle customer enquiries, match products with medicine schedules, and refer to a pharmacist when Schedule 3 medicines are required or requested by a customer.
The SIRCHCS201 is required for any pharmacy assistant that will be directly or indirectly handling S2 or S3 medicines. It forms the basis of the Quality Care Pharmacy Program (QCPP).
A statement of attainment will be issued by the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, RTO Number 0452 upon successful completion of the unit.
Please note that an individual cannot undertake S2/S3 training unless they are already working in a pharmacy.
