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.

Absolutely horrible. I quickly realized high school upgrading classes are for people who recently took the class and wanted get better grades. It’s been 20 yrs since I was in school and was hoping to learn something but the teachers only wanted to talk soccer. I tried multiple times to get help from my teacher and was told to get a tutor. I paid a lot of money and took a lot of my time to take this course only to realize I’ve been duped. That the teacher in the class isn’t there to help but to fill a seat with a warm butt. I complained and tried to get my money back but it was too late they said. And being behind with a teacher who won’t teach or help…I dropped out and the experience stopped me from taking any education classes. I only wish when I called to sign up that sait wouldn’t lie to you but say “it’s only to refresh if you just took the course last term. Don’t expect to be taught anything but the latest soccer scores.”

I took the Engineering Design and Drafting Technology program. The education was second to none. I would highly recommend SAIT to anyone
