Inside Look COCC’s Pharmacy Technician Training Program


We’re the backbone of any pharmacy. So we’re the ones that you’ll see if you go to pick up your prescription someday. We’ll be the ones helping you at the counter to take in your prescriptions we’ll be the ones calling the insurance for the ones that are handing out your prescriptions so that’s kind of what you see in the front. If you have decided that the career path that you’re on isn’t what you want and you decide pharmacy is what you are I mean we have… Most of our students get hired right out of practicum or shortly after. What you’re getting here is your learning about the body systems you’re learning why certain drugs work on my body. You’re learning on the job duties how to count prescriptions how to contact insurance how to make an IV how to distribute that compound medication so you’re getting that hands-on before you even go out in the field. I love it was really hands-on you know it wasn’t just out of the books we got to do more kind of things here in the lab and then the practicum was a great experience. Yeah I was a little nervous about taking an online class and not having that classroom setting with an instructor before you telling you what to do but how the program works is very easy and very durable and you stay in the loop you stay connected with your instructor and of course the 3 hour lab that you have once the week helps with that as well. Right now currently there’s a ton of opportunity I’m getting calls at least once a week from pharmacies asking if you have any students that are about to graduate do you have anybody out there looking this program by far gets you one hundred percent ready for that transition from school to actually working my parents were really proud they’re really happy that I was able to you know not dabble around after high school and just kind of jumped into something and get it done I get a start of my life
