Becoming a Certified Pharmacy Technician

Looking to get certified for a career that offers good opportunities along with the convenience of learning online? Turn to Meditec for certification as a pharmacy technician.

The Career of a Pharmacy Technician

Primarily, pharmacy technicians work under the supervision of pharmacists and assist with the allocation of prescription medications to customers or health professionals. Other job tasks include taking the information needed to fill a prescription, measuring amounts, labeling prescriptions, organizing inventory, processing insurance claims, entering data into computer systems, and answering calls from customers. These professionals work in hospitals giving medications to patients or act as customer service representatives in retail pharmacies.

Job Outlook and Salary for Pharmacy Technicians

Like most health care positions, the employment of pharmacy technicians is expected to grow quickly, with a 12 Percent of projected growth by 2026, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are several factors fueling this growth. With an aging population, many seniors are in need of prescription medications. The higher rate of some chronic diseases, such as diabetes, will add to an increased need for prescription medications. Pharmaceutical research is also advancing at a rapid rate, which means a greater availability of new drugs. Lastly, the federal health insurance reform legislation has given more people access to insurance coverage. The end result is that all of these factors will increase the need for pharmacy technicians to handle the increasing demand for prescriptions.

The BLS reports that the annual median wage for pharmacy technicians was $30,920 in 2016. The top 12 percent earned more than $ 47,600, and the lower 10 percent earned less than $20,035.
