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.

Danville Area Community College’s Corporate Education department is offering a class on PHARMACY TECHNICIANS. The Pharmacy Technicians class for Spring 2021 starts on January 21 and ends April 22, 2021. The hybrid class meets on Thursday evenings in Room 136 Bremer Conference Center. The actual class meeting schedule will be provided by the instructor.

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.

Registered with Pharmacy Technician Certification Board. Able to take exam immediately after class.
