The pharmacy technician diploma program will prepare you for entry-level pharmacy technician positions in both the institutional and community pharmacy setting. The pharmacy technician is one of the fastest growing professions in the medical care field. A pharmacy technician is an individual who works under the direct supervision of a pharmacist. You may perform many of the same duties as a pharmacist; however, all of your work must be checked by a pharmacist before mediations can be dispensed to a customer or patient.

Additional duties may include: receiving and verifying written prescriptions, taking prescription refill requests, preparing IV medications, operating computer and automation systems, applying prescription and auxiliary labels to medication bottles, control and price inventorying, ordering supplies, restocking shelves, preparing insurance claim forms and operating cash registers.
