    Request Information

In the Pharmacy Technology Occupational Endorsement Certificate (OEC) program, you’ll develop the skills you need to work under the supervision of a pharmacist. Courses cover topics in compounding and mixing medications, preparing and delivering medications to patients, ordering supplies, using equipment and maintaining confidential patient records.

Upon successful completion of the OEC, students will be well-prepared to work in various settings as a pharmacy technician and to successfully sit for the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Board examination (PTCB). They will also have a solid background to continue further study in the field of pharmacy, pursuing a pre-pharmacy degree and ultimately a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.  

The occupational endorsement is not contingent upon the student passing any type of external certification or licensure examination. Students should note that although this program has no age restrictions, the state of Alaska requires that all pharmacy technicians be at least 18 years of age prior to licensure.
