The Pharmacy Technician Certificate Curriculum is a formal academic training program that prepares individuals to become pharmacy technicians. These allied health professionals assist and support licensed pharmacists in preparing and dispensing medications and other health care products to patients. Under the direction of a pharmacist, the pharmacy technician performs pharmacy-related functions, in compliance with specific policies and procedures that provide optimal pharmaceutical care for their patients.

Pharmacy technicians are in high demand in health care and in the pharmaceutical industry. Job opportunities for pharmacy technicians are good, especially for those with previous experience, formal training, or certification, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Possible career opportunities for pharmacy technicians include a variety of practice environments including hospital, infusion, and long term care, and mail-order, chain and community pharmacy services. Pharmacy technicians work in computerized, clean, organized, well-lighted, and well-ventilated areas. Most of their workday is spent on their feet. They may be required to lift heavy boxes or to use stepladders to retrieve supplies from high shelves.

Pharmacy technicians often have varying work schedules that include nights, weekends, and holidays. In facilities that are open twenty-four hours a day, such as hospital and mail order pharmacies, technicians may be required to work nights. Many technicians work part time.

The South Carolina Pharmacy Practice Act (administered by the S.C. Board of Pharmacy) requires all pharmacy technicians desiring state certification to (1) pass the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE)- a national exam, (2) complete 1000 hours of practice (up to 400 clinical training hours in an educational program are recognized) under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist, and (3) provide proof of completion of a formal academic pharmacy technician training program that is nationally accredited.

The Pharmacy Technician Certificate program is accredited by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP), 500 East-West Highway, Suite 900 Bethesda, MD 20814, Phone (866) 279-0681, www.ashp.org and the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), 190 S. LaSalle Street, Suite 2850 Chicago, IL 60603-3499, Phone (312) 664-3574, Fax (866) 228-2631, www.acpe-accredit.org.

Admission Requirements

The Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program has limited enrollment. Students are admitted in the fall and in spring semester. Applicants will be accepted as they submit completed applications to the program manager until all seats are filled.

Note: Students who have one year of current work experience as a pharmacy technician in a dispensing pharmacy may be eligible to take the PHM courses in a hybrid format.

Registration and Certification

Pharmacy Technician students are required to be registered with the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (S.C. Board of Pharmacy) prior to beginning clinical rotations. This involves completing a registration application and paying a fee. The application includes the following two questions.

  1. During the past five years, have you been treated for any condition, be it physical, mental, or emotional that could impair your ability to serve as a pharmacy technician?
  2. During the past five years, have you been convicted of any criminal or civil charges (other than minor traffic ticket); is any legal action pending against you or are you currently on probation for any charges or legal action?

If the answer is yes to either of these questions, applicants are required to attach a full written explanation and the State Board of Pharmacy will review each situation separately to determine if applicants will be allowed in a clinical site.

The application for taking the national certification examination from the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board also states that the eligibility requirements to sit for the exam includes the statement you must “have never been convicted of a felony.”

Therefore, students who have been convicted of a felony will not be eligible to take the national certification examination. Students who have been convicted of any criminal or civil charges (other than a minor traffic ticket), have any legal action pending against them, are currently on probation for any charges or legal action, or have been treated for any condition, be it physical, mental, or emotional that could impair their ability to serve as a pharmacy technician during the past five years may not be able to attend clinical rotations and cannot complete the program. Note: SC Code of Law prohibits pharmacies from employing anyone who has been convicted of a felony offense relating to a controlled substance.
