Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy technicians work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist and perform technical and clerical duties in the pharmacy. Pharmacy technicians measure, mix, count out, label, and record medication dosages according to prescription orders.

Blinn offers day, night, and online course options for its 160-hour Pharmacy Technician Program. The program consists of three courses, and includes instruction in pharmacology, pharmacy law and regulations, sterile and non-sterile compounding, medication safety, quality assurance, medication order entry and fill processes, inventory management, billing, and information systems. Students who complete the program will be prepared to take the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam.

Pharmacy Technician students are eligible to apply for Duddlesten Foundation scholarships scholarships while funds remain available.

The Pharmacy Technician Program curriculum is based on nationally recognized training, assessment, and certification standards set by the American Pharmaceutical Association. Courses are taught by faculty comprised of licensed pharmacists and healthcare professionals whose classes are structured to promote quality student-instructor interaction.

To enroll in the Pharmacy Technician Online Program, students must first participate in a mandatory online healthcare information session.
