Pharmacy Technicians help licensed pharmacists in the preparation and distribution of prescription medications in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospital and community pharmacies, and home health pharmacies. Duties of the Pharmacy Technician include data entry, providing customer service, counting, pouring and labeling pharmaceutical products, sterile product preparation, and inventory management.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (, advancement opportunities are available in large pharmacies and health systems. Pharmacy Technicians with significant training or experience can be promoted to supervisory positions. Some may advance into specialty positions such as chemotherapy technician or nuclear pharmacy technician. Others may move into sales. With a substantial amount of formal training, some technicians go on to become pharmacists. Employment for Pharmacy Technicians is expected to increase and job opportunities to be good, especially for those with formal education and a certification.

Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED and must complete the TSI Assessment Tests with the minimum scores of 343 in Math, 347 in Reading, and 357/4 in writing.
