One Hundred Percent of Class Now Nationally Certified Pharmacy Technicians

 


Westminster, Md., March 11, 2009--All 13 students enrolled in the 99-hour Pharmacy Technician Training course at Carroll Community College have passed the national certifying exam to become pharmacy technicians. The group celebrated successful completion of their course and their 100 percent national exam pass rate on Feb. 19.
 National certification qualifies the technicians to register with the State of Maryland as certified pharmacy technicians and practice in the state. All pharmacy technicians in Maryland must be registered with the state in order to practice.
Pharmacy technicians are in high demand. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, the need for pharmacy techs is expected to grow much faster than average through 2014. Pharmacy technicians work in hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities as well as retail or mail-order pharmacies.
The next Pharmacy Technician course begins Tuesday, April 14, at Carroll Community College. To register, call the Continuing Education Office at 410-386-8100 or visit the college web site at www.carrollcc.edu.
