Pharmacy Technicians

Pharmacy technicians help pharmacists in providing medication and health care products to patients. Technicians don’t answer questions regarding prescriptions, but they do count tablets, label bottles, and perform administrative duties.

Responsibilities ultimately vary depending on state laws. Because there is currently few state, and no Federal, requirements for formal training, a career as a pharmacy technician, many employers have on-te-job training, which is appealing to individuals who want to further their education without attending multiple years of school.
