Students must successfully complete the initial PPCC Pharmacy Technician Certificate Program before being eligible to complete the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Certificate. With this advanced certificate students learn how to use spreadsheets and become familiar with necessary medical terminology. Additionally, they learn the methods and regulation of sterile products, the mastery of aseptic technique, and the production of sterile preparations. Students also learn about career opportunities for pharmacy professionals.
Students that register for the advanced pharmacy practice courses without first meeting this requirement and having approval from the program director will be administratively withdrawn from the course.
