Pharmacy Technicians are in great demand and in short supply. Recently, Michigan passed legislation requiring certification and licensure of all pharmacy technicians.The Pharmacy Technology program prepares students for a career in the field of pharmacy technology using the latest advances in processes and technologies.

WCC’s Pharmacy Tech two semester certificate program has been awarded full accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP-ACPE) since 1998. WCC’s accredited Pharmacy Technology certificate is recognized in all 50 states – a tremendous advantage for our graduates.

Since 1983 the ASHP-ACPE has accredited programs, which now number 70 of the close to 200 programs nationwide. To qualify, programs must meet or exceed 80 criteria standards, which cover areas such as training sites and experiential learning (WCC provides 360 clinical hours in one semester), a standard ratio of lab to classroom instruction, and a diverse curriculum that includes pharmacy math, background on drug basics, pharmacy law, and ethics.
