Pharmacy Technicians must have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice, and be skilled in the techniques required to order, stock, package, and prepare medications. The one requirement all pharmacy technician duties have in common is a need for absolute accuracy and precision in both the technical and clerical aspects of the job. When working in a pharmacy, pharmacy technicians work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist. Job opportunities abound in both the retail or commercial pharmacy, as well as the hospital or institutional pharmacy.

Local pharmacists will instruct the course. They will use pharmacy-related activities to bring real-world situations to the classroom. For the individual who has never worked in a pharmacy, this course will provide the knowledge and skills in preparation for an entry-level pharmacy technician position. For those who are already working in a pharmacy, the knowledge and experience gained will serve as preparation for Certification.

The Pharmacy Technician class is offered once in the spring semester and once in the fall semester each year. The class meets on Thursday evenings from 4:00PM until 6:30PM in Room 111 Bremer Conference Center. Dates for the Spring 2021 class are January 21, 2021 thru April 22, 2021. Registration begins on October 26, 2020.

The Course Fee for the Pharmacy Technician course is $220, payable at time of registration.  Books are available in the bookstore at DACC; book prices may vary.  Bookstore: 217-554-1546
