What You’ll Learn
When it comes to understanding proper dosage, combining prescriptions, and possible side effects, the first line of assistance and education for many people is a pharmacy technician. The Associate of Science in Pharmacy Technician program is designed to provide an innovative, career-focused education for students who are interested in beginning their careers in pharmacy science. By graduation, students should be highly knowledgeable and skilled, prepared for national certification, and ready to provide meaningful support to the operation of a pharmacy practice.
The Associate of Science program in Pharmacy Technician at South College is designed for completion in 6 quarters (18 months). Through a blended learning format that includes online lectures, intensive on-site laboratory training, and clinical internships, you’ll receive a thorough technical education that can help you excel in the field. This program covers the same curriculum as the Certificate in Pharmacy Technician program, with two additional quarters for students who want to earn an associate degree.
