Pharmacy Technicians must have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice, and be skilled in the techniques required to order, stock, package, and prepare medications. The one requirement all pharmacy technician duties have in common is a need for absolute accuracy and precision in both the technical and clerical aspects of the job. When working in a pharmacy, pharmacy technicians work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist. Job opportunities abound in both the retail or commercial pharmacy, as well as the hospital or institutional pharmacy.
Local pharmacists will instruct the course. They will use pharmacy-related activities to bring real-world situations to the classroom. For the individual who has never worked in a pharmacy, this course will provide the knowledge and skills in preparation for an entry-level pharmacy technician position. For those who are already working in a pharmacy, the knowledge and experience gained will serve as preparation for Certification.

Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)
with Carle EMS
Emergency Medical Responders (EMR) are individuals who have been trained to handle medical emergencies. These emergencies may range from an accident that happened in traffic, a highway accident or even a natural disaster. An EMR may need to perform basic life support in the form of CPR or other first aid to help stabilize a victim. An EMR could be a police officer, firefighter or anyone who requires supplemental medical training beyond standard first aid. An EMR does not replace EMTs. Rather the EMR may stabilize a person and keep them alive and calm to wait for the arrival of EMTs.
