Pharmacy Technician Certification

This comprehensive, 60-hour course will prepare students for an entry-level position in a community, hospital, or long-term care setting. The course is also an excellent review for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) national certification exam. Topics will include medical terminology specific to the pharmacy, reading and interpreting prescriptions, and defining drugs by generic and brand names. Students will learn dosage calculation, I.V. flow rate, drug compounding, and dose conversion. Dispensing of prescriptions, inventory control, billing, and insurance reimbursement will also be discussed.
