Remington College




This program will provide learning experiences, coordinated with the texts and lab activities to enable graduates to obtain basic competency needed for employment as Pharmacy Technicians in either the hospital or retail setting.

In recent years, the Pharmacy Technician profession has become indispensable to the health care field. Pharmacy Technicians assist pharmacists with technical tasks, such as filling prescriptions and other dispensing duties, thus allowing the Pharmacist more time for other responsibilities. Pharmacy Technicians work under close supervision of pharmacists. Their responsibilities include entering prescriptions into a computer, maintaining records and inventories of drugs and supplies, stocking, packaging and pricing medications.

The objective of the Pharmacy Technician Program is to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to qualify for entry-level positions in pharmacies.

Pharmacy technicians graduates will have to be capable of: receive and screen prescriptions and medication orders for completeness and accuracy, use pharmaceutical and medical terms, abbreviations and symbols appropriately, prepare and distribute medications in a variety of health-system settings and knowing the chemical and physical properties of drugs in manufacturing and packaging operations.
