Dean of Community Relations & Special Events
An upcoming course in Pharmacy Technician training will begin on Monday, February 13, and will be offered on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-9:30 p.m. at the convenient location of the Midland College Advanced Technology Center, 3200 W. Cuthbert (corner of Midkiff and Cuthbert, next to Furr’s Cafeteria).
“At the end of the six-week course, students will be prepared to enter the pharmacy field and take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board’s PTCB exam,” explained Wendy Wood-Collins, director of MC’s Health Sciences Continuing Education department. “There is a huge demand in the Permian Basin for pharmacy technicians to work in hospitals, home infusion pharmacies, community pharmacies, retail drug stores and other healthcare settings. These professional technicians work under the supervision of a registered pharmacist and may eventually advance to managerial positions within the pharmacy or retail store.”
Limited scholarships for specific courses are available. For more information, visit www.midland.edu/hsce or call (432) 681-6354.
