Work Environment

Pharmacy technicians work in pharmacies, including those found in grocery and drug stores, and in hospitals. Most work full time, but many work part time.

How to Become a Pharmacy Technician

Becoming a pharmacy technician usually requires earning a high school diploma or the equivalent. Pharmacy technicians typically learn through on-the-job training, or they may complete a postsecondary education program. Most states regulate pharmacy technicians, which is a process that may require passing an exam or completing a formal education or training program.

ENGINEERING

EGR 110:  Engineering Graphics has no pre-requisites.  The instructor we have this summer is very experienced and very good.  He will be gone for two weeks near the end of the term, at which point the class will temporarily go online.  We can make the lab and computers available during that time for students who prefer to work on campus.

EGR 120:  Introduction to Engineering has a math pre-requisite that many high school students may have met.  They’ll need to take our placement test, and demonstrate that they are ready for MTH 173, which means they have completed pre-calculus with trigonometry.  That class will be face-to-face all summer, and also has a very good instructor.

COREQUISITE: MTH 164 or PREREQUISITE: Completed MTH 115 or MTH 166

Both classes are required for the Germanna Community College Associate in Science in Engineering, and also transfer to universities.  They would make a good jump-start on an engineering degree whether here or elsewhere.
