Pharmacy Technology


This 12-month program is designed to provide training in the competencies required of a Pharmacy Technician.  A Pharmacy Technician assists and supports licensed pharmacist in providing healthcare and medication to patients.  Technicians must have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice, skills, and techniques.  Often, technicians are the first and last person a patient will interact with within the pharmacy.  Because of this, communication skills and customer service are an integral part of training.

We use PioneerRx Pharmacy Software to allow our students to learn in a real-world environment using the most installed software for independent pharmacies. Students enhance their clinical and functional skills by training in this pharmacy system.
