Council for Continuing Pharmaceutical Education (CCPE) and PSP Solutions.

Requirements for achieving the Certified Market Access Professional (CMAP) credential combine CAHR’s Market Access 101 and Market Access 201 plus independent learning via the Council for Continuing Pharmaceutical Education (CCPE) and PSP Solutions (formerly Cadence Learning).

The CMAP Certification Program's four required compo­nents offer a comprehensive summary of market access in Canada: module-based independent learning from CCPE and the Cadence Learning Company, combined with group learning and networking at the CAHR Market Access 101 (MA 101) and Market Access 201 (MA201) educational conferences.

Participants can register at any time and can start with the CCPE and PSP Solutions courseware, which can be completed from the comfort of home.

The CCPE course1 "Pharmaceutical Market Access in Canada" materials include an authoritative guide to every aspect of the market access and reimbursement environment, with an online exam for your convenience.

The Cadence Learning Company course "Introduction to Patient Support Programs" (PSP) provides a foundational overview of the Canadian (PSP) landscape, the patient journey through a PSP, the financial impacts of PSPs and the areas of benefit and risk associated with these programs. The course has an online exam for your convenience.


The Pharmaceutical Market Access in Canada course provides an overview of the complexities of the Canadian Access environment. The course provides the information necessary to plan effective work with approval bodies, payers and other stakeholders. The course outlines the regulations and submission, review and approval processes, which all need to be thoroughly understood if a medication is to be launched and marketed successfully. Field Sales, Marketers and members of the Executive need to have a clear understanding of the access environment and processes in order to effectively plan and implement strategies to lower the market access barriers and increase value to customers.

Note: If you have completed this course within the past two years, you will receive credit and will only need to complete the Introduction to Patient Support Programs course and CAHR's Market Access 101 and Market Access 201 programs order to receive your certification.
