As our population grows and ages, there is a vital need for trained professionals to provide pharmacy-related assistance. In this program, learners will train to assist pharmacy personnel in addressing and ensuring the health needs of a diverse population. As future professionals working under Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians, students of this program will learn to prepare pharmaceuticals, manage inventory, and as the potential first point of contact, assist customers in a variety of related ways.

Through a combination of theory-based study and hands-on laboratory practice, this program covers pharmacy concepts, pharmaceutical calculations, body systems, pharmaceutical implications, order processing, clerical functions, and professional and communications standards. Following this, students spend the second semester increasing their competency through integrating theoretical knowledge with real dispensing practice and customer service, during a 160-hour practicum based in a community pharmacy.

BE WARNED!!! 👇SAIT unethical and unfair business practice that you need to be aware of so you don't waste your time and money!
I applied to SAIT in May for an OPEN advertised program, waited 2 months + for an update on my application status only to be told that the same program been advertised as Open to the public up until the 1st week of July was actually filled by early February.
I reached out to the CEO, who passed my concerns on to his registrar, who up till my writting have not deem it fit to address and provide answers as to why an institution would advertised a non existent program defrauding applicants of their hard earned money and causing so much frustration and uncertainty.
So to avoid the same frustration and waste of time and resource that I experienced, you are better off seeking admission from any other institution.
