Pharmacy Technician Program Info

The Pharmacy Technician Applied Technology Diploma program is a two-semester, 40 credit hour program which is designed to provide both technical and practical training that will enable the graduate to work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist in community, hospital, long-term care facilities, drug manufacturers, Chemo-compounding facilities, mail order pharmacy and health maintenance organizations.

This program provides students with knowledge of practice in pharmacy calculations, drug distribution systems, computer skills necessary in pharmacy practice and preparation of sterile and non-sterile dosage forms.

The program emphasizes theory, as well as hands-on practice, followed by a practicum which prepares students for the actual work setting in the last eight-week in the spring semester.

The Pharmacy Technician program begins each Fall term with the next application deadline of May 17, 2019.  Admission is limited so students must follow the program's application process.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to be licensed pharmacy technicians within the state of Florida. Students are strongly encouraged to take the National Certification Exam toward the end of their studies and while attending EFSC.
