    Remington College - Shreveport Campus Pharmacy Technician Overview

    Shreveport Pharmacy Technician students train in our mock pharmacy, which houses simulated retail, IV, and compounding stations. As a student, you'll work with the tools of the trade and use industry-grade equipment like:

    • Laminar airflow hoods
    • Syringes and needles
    • IV bags and tubing
    • Weighing scales
    • Hotplate stirrers
    • Beakers and graduated cylinders
    • Capsule and tablet makers and molds
    • Ointment tubes
    • Packaging items, and more.

    Extemporaneous compounding and inventory management tend to be among the class favorites, as you'll get to use the large selection of compounding materials and ingredients in the lab to measure, mix, and make items like lip balms, lotions, and hand creams. CPR certification training is also incorporated into our program.

    Pharmacy Tech Training

    Our Shreveport campus instructors have worked in many areas in the pharmacy field, from retail to hospital. Each instructor has earned a minimum of an associate's degree along with being a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT), and earning a Louisiana state certification and CPR certification.

    Because they've done the job, they know what the work is like and understand what employers in Caddo and Bossier Parishes are seeking. They have a commitment to their students, too, and enjoy seeing them graduate and begin building their futures in the pharmacy tech industry.(1)

    If that's the kind of learning environment you'd like to be a part of, check it out firsthand! Call us today or stop by our Shreveport Campus to learn more about our Pharmacy Technician diploma program.

    Outside of class, you can take part in Campus-wide community events like food drives, clothing drives, and blood drives. As part of your program, you may also participate in field trips and hear from guest speakers in the industry.

    Beyond that, each Shreveport Pharmacy Technician student must complete an externship in an actual pharmacy, which can provide a realistic on-the-job experience for you.(1,3)

    The Shreveport Pharmacy Technician diploma program has programmatic accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) http://www.ashp.org/. The ASHP is a nationally recognized non-profit pharmacy association that has been accrediting pharmacy technician training programs since 1983. The group says this about accreditation: "Accreditation seeks to enhance the quality of a program/ institution by promoting self evaluation; encouraging quality improvement; and providing public accountability by ensuring specific criteria are met." http://www.ashp.org/DocLibrary/Accreditation/FAQs-Pharm-Tech.aspx
