This program is accredited by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs. You’ll learn in state-of-the-art facilities designed to replicate the drug distribution systems used in today’s pharmacy settings, and will receive the specialized training you need to work as a pharmacy technician in a community, hospital or other pharmacy practice site.

What You’ll Learn

  • Read and interpret drug orders.
  • Process prescriptions using industry software.
  • Complete third-party (insurance) billing.
  • Prepare, package, label, and dispense medications.
  • Perform sterile and non-sterile compounding.
  • Think critically and identify problems pertaining to drug therapy.
  • Communicate with patients and health care professionals in a professional manner.
  • Conduct inventory management and front store marketing.

You’ll complete two four-week field placements (160 hours each) – one in a retail pharmacy and one in a hospital pharmacy. Prior to your placements, you must obtain (at your own expense) a valid CPR + AED certificate (Level C) with standard First Aid, and present an up-to-date immunization record approved by the Sheridan College Health Centre.

The program will help you sharpen your skills by providing you with a comprehensive knowledge base in core subjects such as English, pharmacy math, pharmacy legislation, human anatomy and physiology, and pharmacology.

I’m in the computer science program at Sheridan college in Oakville. Specifically, I study mobile computing. That means I develop apps for smartphones.

To me, the campus environment is great. The school is known for excellent programs and excellent sports (go Bruins). My program consists of a lot of code writing, collaborating with designers, and trial and error. Our instructors have built apps of their own, which you can download to your phones today. It is great having instructors who actually know what they are talking about.

I knew I wanted to attend Sheridan as soon as I got to the campus tour. The modern design and clean campus made me feel at home and inspired me to work harder on each and every assignment so far. Anyone looking for a great computer science program does not need to look any farther.

There's a weird narrative out there about Sheridan only caring about international students. I'm a domestic student and I finished my advanced diploma in marketing last year, which included the search marketing course. My profs were industry professionals who were extremely helpful and approachable. Most of them knew me by my first name.

I'm working at an agency in downtown Toronto right now and loving every second of it. I highly recommend the school and the program.
