NFCC offers Pharmacy Tech

Classes begin Jan. 8 | Application deadline is Dec. 2

North Florida Community College’s Allied Health Department is currently accepting students for its new Pharmacy Technician certificate program. The new program is set to begin Jan. 8 and according to NFCC Allied Health Advisor Debbie Bass, now is the time to contact NFCC and complete the application process.
“We are seeing a lot of interest in the Pharmacy Technician program,” said Bass. “Approximately 15-20 students will be selected for this first class and it’s important for anyone interested in applying to the program to contact me before the Dec. 2 deadline.”

The program takes less than a year to complete, approximately 10 months, and prepares students to enter the workforce as trained professionals. Pharmacy Technicians perform technical and clerical duties in pharmacies while working with licensed pharmacists to dispense prescription medications. Graduates who achieve a passing score on the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam and register with the Florida State Board of Pharmacy can seek employment as Certified and Registered Pharmacy Technicians.    

“The Pharmacy Technician certificate is a great addition to NFCC’s Allied Health offerings,” said Julie Townsend, Allied Health Director at NFCC. “Employment in this area of healthcare is expected to grow over the next several years and we are looking forward to training our communities’ future Pharmacy Technicians.”    

According to the Bureau Labor and Statistics (BLS), employment of pharmacy technicians is expected to increase more than 32% from 2010 to 2020. According to Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Labor Market Statistics Center project 22% increase in employment of pharmacy technicians by 2019 for Workforce Region 6, the counties NFCC serves.

“The NFCC Allied Health Department has a reputation for producing high student pass rates, offering exceptional training opportunities and being student oriented,” said Townsend. “You can expect the same quality standards and opportunities from our new Pharmacy Technician certificate program.”

Student applications will be accepted through Dec. 2. For more information, contact NFCC Allied Health Advisor Debbie Bass in the NFCC Career and Technical Education Center (Bldg. 13) at (850) 973-1662 or bassd@nfcc.edu.
