OVERVIEW

A technician is an individual who, under the supervision of a pharmacist, assists in the performance of activities of the pharmacy department not requiring the professional judgment of a pharmacist.
This program focuses on preparing students to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam. The program teaches students basic concepts of pharmacy, along with basic pharmacology, medications and their uses, daily tasks, and pharmacy math. In addition, students are required to complete 96 hours of on-the-job training. With more and more pharmacists doing patient clinics and working directly with physicians, they are relying on the technicians to manage the daily activities of the pharmacy.
Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam Review included in course studies. Tuition also pays to sit for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam and a Missouri License for a pharmacy technician.
It is possible to learn on the job, but employers prefer pharmacy techs that have formal training and certification.

MISTI ESSLEY (Instructor)

Misti Essley teaches the Pharmacy Technician program at Franklin Technology Center.  She has been the Coordinator and Instructor since 2007.  She has been a Certified Pharmacy Technician since 2003.

Misti attended Franklin Technology Center’s Pharmacy Technician Program in September of 2003.  Back then, it was a community education class that met 2 nights a week for 12 weeks.   The Pharmacy Technician program has changed so much in the last 12 years that the program now goes for 9 months and meets 4 days a week.

Misti was employed with Freeman Health System for 11+ years.  She worked as a Certified IV Pharmacy Technician in the Inpatient Pharmacy.  She made intravenous medications for patients in the hospital.

Helping others succeed in the field of pharmacy technician is what drives Misti to teach.  She wants others to experience the rewards of helping patients with their medications needs.
