One of the most critical jobs in health care is a Pharmacy Technician. Working in this field gives you the reward of knowing that you are helping people.

The U.S. Department of Labor projects demand for Pharmacy Technicians to remain high because of a greater need for medications.

Population growth and increases in age will fuel growth in health related institutions and agencies to meet healthcare needs.

Development of new medications and the expansion of medication delivery systems will provide additional opportunities for Certified Pharmacy Technicians. Northern Arizona is experiencing intense demand for qualified healthcare professionals.

The Pharmacy Technician program is appropriate for students with a background in high school science and math, plus an interest in detail, technology, and consumer service.

In the workplace, pharmacy technicians are front line workers who assist pharmacists in preparing and providing medication and other health products to consumers or patients.

They receive written requests, refill requests, and verify patient information.

They answer telephones and respond to questions, or refer customers to the pharmacist for detailed information.

They may mix or package prescribed medication, type and affix labels, and fill prescriptions.

Other duties may be to help maintain equipment and work areas.

The Pharmacy Technician program at Yavapai College prepares students to perform a wide variety of pharmacy related tasks under the direct supervision of a registered pharmacist, either in both outpatient and inpatient settings.

For more information about becoming a Pharmacy Technician, please call Yavapai College Academic Advisor, Marcia Byrd, at (928) 634-6517 or visit the Pharmacy Technician webpage at www.yc.edu/MAPT.
