Upon successful completion of all courses in this CCP pathway, the student will be awarded a Certificate in Pharmacy Technology from DCCC. Once students complete the certificate they are encouraged to continue their coursework towards a diploma or associate degree. Once students complete the diploma, they are eligible to take the national Pharmacy Tech certification exam.
A student must earn a grade of “C” or better in all PHM prefix courses in order to progress in the program
Criminal Background Check
A criminal background check, drug screen, and up-to-date immunizations are required by the clinical site prior to participation in the clinical component.
If any clinical facility denies a student’s participation in clinical experiences in that clinical agency, the student will not be able to progress in the program.
In addition to DCCC requirements and course objectives, there are professional standards that encompass communication, motor skills, sensory and cognitive ability and professional conduct that are essential for the competent study and practice of this program.
