What should I do to prepare for the entrance exam?
You do not need any prior enrollment in Apexus education offering(s) to enter the Certificate Program; however, you can attend a 340B University in person or watch the 340B University OnDemand modules available on the 340B Prime Vendor Program website. This education does serve as a building block to help prepare you for the Operations Certificate Entrance Exam.
I've heard the program is very challenging. Is that true?
Yes, the program is very challenging. The program is advanced, covers the topics in depth, and gives you the opportunity to gain true 340B expertise. The modules bridge the gaps between policy and operations while teaching the advanced skills needed for even the toughest implementation challenges.
