The Pharmacy Technician Program is a 79.0 Quarter Credit Hour program of study containing 1020 hours of training that prepares the student for entry level employment as a Pharmacy Technician. Pharmacy Technicians are trained Health Care professionals who work in both hospitals and retail pharmacies under the supervision of a pharmacist. Pharmacy Technicians prepare and fill prescriptions under the direction of a pharmacist, issue medications, and label and store supplies. The Pharmacy Technician curriculum stems from the philosophy of the College and the standards of the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). The program of study provides educational preparation for the pharmacy technician occupation by combining classroom experiences with a supervised externship to validate competencies in pharmacy technician knowledge and skills. Graduates of this training program will have learned the basic aspects of pharmacy practice, including reading, filling and distributing prescriptions. They will understand the legal responsibilities of a pharmacy for record maintenance and the handling of various categories of drugs, and they will know basic pharmaceutical calculations, medications, common drug interactions and their side effects and pharmaceutical agents and their uses. In order to work in the field, Pharmacy Technicians are also required to be registered with the Alabama Board of Pharmacy and satisfactorily complete all drug screen and background check requirements.
