I first heard about NACPT at a job fair, but at that time I was confused about the modern technology program offered by NACPT. After a couple of discussions with the director, I got the real scenario of the program.

By taking the modern technology program, I have gathered the power of knowledge about the pharmaceutical industry.

I was an MSc graduate from UOIT when I first came across NACPT while searching the internet for post-graduate courses in the pharmaceutical industry. I was intrigued by the Career Orientation Seminar which they were providing and decided to attend. The decision to attend this seminar changed my life. After meeting the staff and professors at NACPT I knew that this was an opportunity to learn from industry experts and gain essential information about the pharmaceutical industry. From the moment I arrived at NACPT as a new student I knew this college was different due to the individualized attention given to each student, the wealth of industry knowledge each professor provided and professionalism of the learning environment.

Position: Quality Assurance Manager, Manufacturing and Packaging
I like the fact that the program was flexible and class sizes were small. It’s a program you could pursue while working full- or part-time, and it’s very easy to ask questions or get clarifications on issues. I think there are a lot of colleges that don’t really provide the knowledge in exchange for the money invested by students, which makes people wary of attending private colleges. However, I got the knowledge that was promised from NACPT. For new science graduates with no industrial experience, it is helpful to learn about the GMP, GLP etc. standards which are essential to the pharmaceutical industry and are not taught in most university science programs. Year 2010.

After completing my Bachelor of Science at University of Waterloo, I came straight to North American College of Pharmaceutical Technology. I had a lot of uncertainty about my future. However, the instructors at North American College of Pharmaceutical Technology were very welcoming and approachable. I strongly believe the coaching and guidance I received here not be comparable to other schools. The one-on-one coaching and availability of instructors for extra hours was very useful in learning the course material. The instructors were all industrial experts, with years of pharmaceutical working experience and were very compassionate about passing their knowledge onto fresh minds. I worked closely with the school for job assistance and interview preparation. I got two interviews through North American College of Pharmaceutical Technology which refined my interview skills and they allowed me to use their name for reference purposes. Plus, I appreciated the $2000 scholarship and the financial assistance I received from North American College of Pharmaceutical Technology.

An additional unique advantage at NACPT was that the classes were intimate and hence easy to relate to each other as students and more to our instructors.

Kunal goes very in depth, with passion. I learned a lot today and will definitely carry this with me and spread my knowledge to others. I would 10/10 recommend this to other cannabis retailers.
As an experienced bud tender, I found the information to be extremely informative. As the cannabis industry continues to grow we need to be more and more informed and having a course in this can allow many people to properly learn about the benefits and negative effects of cannabis.
The class was highly informative and engaging. I had a lot of fun learning about cannabis and its chemical/biological properties. A lot of the information I learned today I could pass on to customers that come into my stores.
Using “layman’s terms” for those who are less educated. More inclusivity – games, tests, quizzes, etc. All useful information; debunked many myths.
Information was delivered in a very thorough manner. The course was full of very useful/valuable information. I enjoyed the open floor which allowed for a level of comfort, interaction and asking questions and great opportunity to learn and educate myself/ourselves on the biochemistry of cannabis and human physiological responses; as well as useful anecdotal research.
Helpful and useful information. Learned a lot behind cannabis and its effects. This will be extremely useful for my workplace.
Yes everyone involved with the cannabis industry should have this basic or more informative/in depth training in order to familiarize themselves with background knowledge. Hands on/visual interactions would be a nice addition to the course.
Went in with limited knowledge and came out feeling like my sales will be a lot better now I’m more comfortable now that I understand my products.
