Pharmacy technicians help licensed pharmacists provide medication and other health care products to patients. As a technician you must be aware of the necessity for aseptic technique, cleanliness, orderliness and accuracy in the work areas. You may be working in hospital and community pharmacies, extended care facilities, home health care or industry settings. As a pharmacy technician, you should possess good math skills, be able to tactfully deal with customers and patients and enjoy precise work because details are sometimes a matter of life and death. If this sounds like a good career fit for you, then this program may be just for you!
The Pharmacy Technician Program will prepare you to enter this exciting and rewarding career field and become a valuable member of the broader health care team. Join your classmates and learn the basic drug classifications, aseptic technique, and math needed to provide the highest quality service to your patients and customers.
Upon successful completion of the classroom course, students are eligible to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) exam.
