About Pharmacy Technology at Tri-C:
The Pharmacy Technology program prepares a student for a career as a pharmacy technician. Through very specialized courses, you will learn about medications and their effects on the body and about pharmacy compounding, packaging and labeling. Students will spend time in the program’s dedicated pharmacy lab, using genuine pharmacy equipment, before working rotations at actual pharmacies, in both hospital and community (outpatient) settings. Such real-world experience is exactly what healthcare employers are seeking in this rapidly growing field. (Please note: this is not a pre-Pharmacy Program and is not a direct pathway to a Doctor of Pharmacy -- PharmD -- degree.)
The Pharmacy Tech program offers the option of day or evening classes, allowing you to have some flexibility in your schedule.
