Pharmacy technicians help licensed pharmacists provide medication and other health care products to patients. As a technician you must be aware of the necessity for aseptic technique, cleanliness, orderliness and accuracy in the work areas. You may be working in hospital and community pharmacies, extended care facilities, home health care or industry settings.
As a pharmacy technician, you should possess good math skills, be able to tactfully deal with customers and patients and enjoy precise work because details are sometimes a matter of life and death.
We also offer a clinical experience in conjunction with Waterbury Hospital. All students who successfully complete the Pharmacy Technician Program will receive a Proficiency Certification from Naugatuck Valley Community College.
