What is a certificate in pharmacy? Individuals who enjoy working in the pharmaceutical industry will enjoy learning the skills necessary to dispense medication to customers or healthcare professionals. A certificate program offers courses that teach students how to gather the information needed to fill a medication, measure proper quantities of medication for prescriptions, and package and label prescriptions. Students in a certificate program will also learn how to organize medicine inventory and inform the pharmacist of any shortages. Through classes and hands-on training, individuals also learn how to process insurance claims and compound some medications under the direction of pharmacists.

One of the greatest benefits of completing a certificate in pharmacy is easier access to a job. Even if some states don’t require certification to be a pharmacy technician, certification makes it easier to get a job.

The cost of earning a certificate in pharmacy fluctuates. This is because it depends on where the certificate is completed. Vocational schools and community colleges offer certificate programs, and distance learning is also available.

Becoming a pharmacy technician is one of the best careers available after completing a certificate in pharmacy. Pharmacy technicians may work in retails pharmacies, such as those located in grocery and general merchandise stores. A good majority of pharmacy technicians work in pharmacies and drug stores. Hospitals and ambulatory healthcare services also employ pharmacy technicians. Most pharmacy technicians work full time on their feet all day; however, some may choose to work part time. An aging population means the need for pharmacy technicians is on the rise.
