Pharmacy Tech Certificate: 3 Reasons Why it’s Worth Getting

by on July 27th, 2016 in Articles News

There are many reasons why it’s worth your while to get your Pharmacy Tech certificate from Ayers Career College. We have been training students for specialized careers since 1953, and started the Pharmacy Technician program in 2004. Since then, we have been training students to become reliable members of a pharmacy healthcare team. Our 36 week program combines hands-on training with classroom instruction, and is taught by knowledgeable instructors who have years of real-world experience.

Here are 3 reasons why you should get a Pharmacy Tech Certificate at Ayers!

Hands-on, Real-life training: Your career training will include learning exercises like mock clinics – which will be set up with real-life, practical scenarios – as well as hands-on training inside a realistic pharmacy setting. Best of all, you will learn from certified instructors (certified by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board).

You’ll Build a Strong Foundation of Knowledge:  You will learn the basics of medical abbreviations, pharmacy calculations, and drug interactions – You’ll be taught how to make medications, IV admixtures and compound drugs, as well as fill capsules, syrups, lotions, and solutions. You’ll also learn the basics to maintaining patient records. We help you build a solid foundation so you can grow and excel in your career!

PT’s are Kind-of a Big Deal!  Pharmacy Technicians are in great demand in a variety of workplaces. So, an externship will help you to practice, learn, and develop the skills necessary to get started in a functional pharmacy. Plus, you’ll learn the necessary customer service skills to be able to answer or direct any concerns and questions of customers that will help you expand your education and potential career options!

Additional career development courses are open to all pharmacy tech students – These courses will teach you effective interview skills, social network usage, how to write a quality resume, and how to build a professional portfolio. In addition, you’ll learn about networking, time management, what constitutes professional attire, and how to find and follow job leads

Graduating students will be eligible to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam. After graduation and passing the exam, you will be able to work in retail or hospital pharmacies, university laboratories, government research agencies, or within the biopharmaceutical industry. The job placement rate for graduates of our program is 85% (we also offer full-time job placement assistance). Financing might be an option for you through private and federal scholarships, loans, and grants.
