Pharmacy Technicians assist and support licensed Pharmacists in providing health care products and medication to patients. Pharmacy Technicians often perform a central role in the preparation and delivery of drug products and act as a liaison for the pharmacist, doctor, and the patient. Technicians receive prescription and refill requests from patients and must verify authenticity and accuracy. Pharmacy Technicians prepare the actual prescriptions, sometimes including the actual compounding of medication. Additionally, they prepare medication containers and label these. All pharmacy technicians must be registered by the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation. This certificate program will prepare students with the training, education, and skills necessary to pass the licensing exam available from the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) and begin an entry level job in the pharmacy technician profession. Pharmacy Technician students must pass all courses in the program curriculum with at least a C and maintain a minimum term GPA of 2.0 to proceed through the program. Students must place into Beginning Algebra on COMPASS or remediate to that level.
