Note the registration code for this class, EDU C42. Determine what month you would like to begin, either Aug. 16, Sept. 13, Oct. 18 or Nov. 8.

For a Sept. 13 start you would add the section code 292. For a Oct. 18 start you would add the section code 293. For a Nove. 8 start you would add the section code 294. So if you wanted to take GMAT Preparation starting on Aug. 16, you would register for class EDU C42 291.

1. Go to www.ed2go.com/triton. 2. Select COURSES from the navigation menu at the top of the page. 3. Enter the name of the course that you want to access. 4. Proceed through the next steps, adding your name, password and contact information.

For example, let’s assume you want to register for GMAT Preparation on Page 47.

For an Aug. 16 start you would add the section code 291.

Once you have registered for your class either through Triton’s website or by calling (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3500, you must let the online classroom know you are ready to start your class.

Continuing Education Center for Health Professionals

Pharmacy Technician Program Pharmacy technicians work under the supervision of licensed pharmacists to perform technical duties in the systematic operation of the pharmacy – providing health care services and medications to patients. This 75-hour course will introduce students to various settings in pharmacy practice, including the community, hospital, managed care, mail order and long-term care. Information on qualifying for the pharmacy certification examination will be provided. Technicians may perform many of the same duties as pharmacists; however, all of a technician's work must be checked by a pharmacist before medicine can be dispensed to a patient.

Course Schedule Fall 2017 Morning Session Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, Sept. 11-Nov. 6, 2017 • 8-11 a.m. Evening Session Tuesdays and Thursdays, Sept. 5-Dec. 5, 2017 • 6-9 p.m. Course Fee • $1,200* (Textbooks Not Included) *Additional college registration and technology fees may apply.

Career Outlook According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of pharmacy technicians is projected to grow 20 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Several factors will lead to increased demand for prescription medications. Depending on the position, the technician may also manage third-party billing, answer telephones, direct customers to items or to the pharmacist for medication consultation, receive written prescriptions, clean and sterilize dispensing bottles and instruments, answer questions regarding non-drug products, and operate a cash register. Salaries vary depending on experience, hours, and location. The median annual wage for pharmacy technicians was $29,320 in May 2012.

Pharmacy Technician Externship! Clinical Training is an essential part of health care for any specialty, including pharmacy technicians. This course offers students who have completed a pharmacy technician training program an opportunity to complete an externship, including 90 hours of hands-on training at a pharmacy. Students will be required to complete a drug test and background check. Hours and schedule may vary depending on location. Students may enroll at any time during the semester.

Educational Requirements High school diploma or equivalent. Since pharmacy technicians interact daily with co-workers, patients and health care professionals, good communication and interpersonal skills are essential. It is recommended that students take the math placement exam to ensure their ability to do basic college math.

For more information, please call Katie Leonardo, Manager, Center for Health Professionals at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3709, or visit our website www.triton.edu/chp.
