Program Description for Pharmacy Technician

View Basket View Basket
Provider Delta College
Date of last update 8/20/2013
Description Pharmacy technicians assist and support licensed pharmacists in providing health care and medications to patients. They must have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice, and be skilled in the techniques required to order, stock, package, and prepare medications, but they do not need the advanced college education required of a licensed pharmacist. Employers favor those who complete formal training and certification. Pharmacy technicians work in hospitals, retail, home health care, nursing homes, clinics and in mail order. This 90-hour program is spent in a classroom environment with simulated lab experiences. The course includes a mock certification examination to prepare for the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam.
