Pharmacy Technician (Onsite)
New Session Begins September 9, 2014

Description:

The comprehensive 50-hour course will prepare you to enter the pharmacy field in hospitals, home infusion pharmacies and community pharmacies and work under the supervision of a registered pharmacist.

Job opportunities for pharmacy technicians are expected to be good, especially for those with previous experience, formal training, or certification. Job openings will result from employment growth, as well as the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force.


outlineCourse content will include:

  • Medical terminology specific to the pharmacy reading and interpreting prescriptions
  • Defining drugs by generic and brand names.
  • Dosage calculations, I.V. flow rates, drug compounding and dose conversions
  • Dispensing of prescriptions
  • Inventory control, billing and reimbursement will also be discussed

Upon completion of the training, you will receive a packet of information regarding the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) exam. The exam is held at three sites in Michigan and costs $125. The packet explains the PTCB certification process and will walk you through the eligibility requirements, application procedures and important deadlines.
