Train to Become a Pharmacy Tech with Classes at FORTIS Schools

Pharmacy Technicians are trained health care professionals who work in both hospitals and retail pharmacies under the supervision of a pharmacist.  Pharmacy Technicians prepare and fill prescriptions under the direction of a pharmacist, issue medications, and label and store supplies.  If you are interested in a career working alongside pharmacists, then consider the Fortis pharmacy technician training program at a school campus in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania or Tennessee.

Our pharmacy technician program students will understand the legal responsibilities of a pharmacy for record maintenance and the handling of various categories of drugs.  In addition, the program teaches basic pharmaceutical calculations, medications, common drug interactions and their side effects and pharmaceutical agents and their uses.
