FVCC Announces Spring 2016 Pharmacy Technology Program Application Deadline

The priority deadline to apply for admission into Flathead Valley Community College’s spring 2016 Pharmacy Technology program is September 1 at 4 p.m. Late applications will be considered through October 15 as space allows.


The one-semester program, offered in partnership with Kalispell Regional Healthcare, involves students taking medical terminology, basic human biology, pharmacology and medical setting customer care and privacy classes at FVCC. Students also complete a pharmacy course, taught by a Kalispell Regional Healthcare pharmacist, on the college campus. Off campus, students spend approximately 12 weeks receiving 20 hours per week of on-the-job training while rotating through a variety of settings including retail pharmacies and hospital pharmacies. Upon successful completion of the program, students are eligible to take the Certified Pharmacy Technician exam, qualifying them to enter the workforce as certified pharmacy technicians at long-term care facilities, retail pharmacies and hospital pharmacies.


In order to be considered for the program, applicants are required to have already applied to and have been accepted to Flathead Valley Community College. In addition, applicants are required to have complete application packets and are subject to comprehensive background checks and occupational health clearance among other requirements.


Space in the program is limited, and seats are filled based on the quality and completeness of all required application materials. Priority will be granted to applicants who have completed all prerequisites before the September 1 deadline.


To obtain a Pharmacy Technology program application, contact Janice Alexander at 756-3948 or Russ Lamson at 756-3885.
