This program is designed to teach students the fundamentals and particulars of being a Pharmacy Technician II. It is geared toward a variety of students including those interested in becoming pharmacy technicians, pre-pharmacy students or those with a health care background looking to strengthen their current skills. This class introduces students to various pharmacy practice settings and covers drug classes, basic physiology, drug interactions and daily pharmacy operations. This program trains individuals to effectively assist in pharmaceutical preparations and complete daily required tasks in any pharmacy environment, although on-the-job training is still a part of pharmacy training. This class also will prepare you to take the national certification exam.

Also, students will be thoroughly trained in the basic concepts of pharmacy calculations. Students will have the opportunity to understand and practice math concepts and calculations needed to become a certified pharmacy technician.

Following the classroom training of 180 hours, students will have a time frame of approximately six weeks to sit for the national certification exam and obtain their state license. They then will be assigned to an externship position of 120 hours that will complete their training.
