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.

If you want to pay out of your nose to try and learn from instructors who can barely speak english let alone interface with you in figuring things out, this is the school for you. What a worthless program and diploma-mill of an institution. Spend your time and money pursuing things closer to you than the pigeonholes places like this would have you shoved inside.

Half-way through course, and still no resolution on 360 email. No one available to talk to, and contacts noted in email are never available. Was like this when I registered last year. You'd think I'd learn.
