About Pharmacy Technician Schools

If you are interested in healthcare, working as part of a team, and helping to ensure patients receive their medications and know how to take them, a career as a pharmacy technician may be for you. Currently, there are few state and no federal requirements for formal training or certification of pharmacy technicians. Prospective employers, however, are seeking individuals with a diploma, certificate, or an associate degree from a Pharmacy Technician College. Education programs at Pharmacy Technician Schools require classroom and laboratory work in a variety of areas, including medical and pharmaceutical terminology, pharmaceutical calculations, and pharmaceutical techniques. Individuals also are required to learn medication names and their indications and dosages. Our list of Pharmacy Technician Colleges offers a variety of programs.

Most pharmacy technicians work in retail and hospital pharmacies. Depending on practice setting, pharmacy technicians will handle taking prescriptions orders; preparing prescriptions for the supervising pharmacist to check; reading patient charts and delivering the medicine to patients; and reviewing medication instructions with patients. Individuals will learn these skills while attending a Pharmacy Technician College as well as on-the-job training. Successful pharmacy technicians are responsible, observant, and organized; can work independently; and most importantly are detail oriented because prescriptions errors can cause side effects and death. Browse our list of Pharmacy Technician Schools to get you started on becoming a pharmacy technician.
