Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy Technicians work under the direct supervision and control of a licensed pharmacist. They perform repetitive, basic routine tasks related to the processing of a prescription in a pharmacy. Pharmacy Technicians may: count tablets; measure, mix, pour and record amounts and dosages of medications; label bottles; and package pharmaceuticals. Pharmacy Technicians typically work in retail or hospital settings that are clean, organized, well-lit and well-ventilated. They spend most of their work day on their feet and may work eight hours or more per day. The job of Pharmacy Technician will appeal to those who enjoy working with people and performing duties that are organized, clearly defined, and require accuracy and attention to detail. Students must have a High School Diploma or GED and a clear background check (English version required if document is in a foreign language). All students must also pass an English and Math proficiency test. To receive program certification students must complete all classes within a 2-year time frame. 96% of our students pass the National Board Exam.
