Program Summary

The Pharmacy Technician Diploma Program provides training in the basic elements of the field of pharmacy such as medical abbreviations, prescription writing and interpretation, drug forms and routes of administration, sterile product mixtures and compounding, as well as developing relationships between the pharmacist and the pharmacy technician. The objective of this Program is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions such as pharmacy technician, pharmacy service representative, outpatient pharmacy technician, and inpatient pharmacy technician in work locations such as retail or mail-order pharmacies, hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities.

Program completion normally requires 49 weeks of instruction for full-time students, which are delivered over a 53-week period that includes scheduled break times. The Program is divided into 12 monthly academic periods (modules) comprised of 11 months of classroom/laboratory instruction and one 200-hour externship period.

In order to be eligible for the externship period, students must successfully complete all courses in the academic periods and must have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.

Students enrolling in the Pharmacy Technician Program will be subject to one or more background check(s) and drug screening(s). Additionally, the state of Alabama requires pharmacy technicians to be registered.

Upon successful completion of all areas of this Program, graduates will be awarded a Diploma in Pharmacy Technician.
