This course provides both job training and preparation for the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam. It focuses on the retail pharmacy industry and emphasizes the importance of customer service. Those students who wish to work in hospital or veterinary pharmacies will generally receive additional on-the-job training specific to those environments.

      The course is designed to prepare students for the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE). Classroom sessions are conducted on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the college’s Albany Extension Center, located on the fourth floor of 175 Central Ave.

      Required online sessions are scheduled for each Wednesday, with both the students and the instructor participating independently, but simultaneously.

      The optional internship is comprised of six sessions at a pharmacy, and 100 % attendance is required for course completion.

      Please Note: Participation in the internship is contingent upon passing a background check. Students in this training program must not have any felonies or drug-related criminal offenses on their records.

      Prerequisites: Minimum 10th grade reading and math skill levels; basic computer skills; access to a personal computer with internet access.

      Class Schedule
      Tuesday/Thursday: 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., Albany Extension Center
      Wednesday: 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., online with Instructor.

    - Posted on December 7, 2017
    • Greetings to the Campus Community,

      I want to acknowledge and say “thank you” to the hundreds of students, staff and faculty who helped make yesterday’s Inaugural Spirit Day a huge success! 😊

      We estimate that more than 500 folks donated a food item to the pantry and an equal number stopped by for the Spirit Day festivities in the Campus Center. Thanks to all of you
      who contributed to this effort, and we are pleased to note that the food pantry is well stocked as we head toward the end of the fall semester.

      I would also extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff of the Div. of Enrollment and Student Development who sponsored and coordinated this event.

      Finally, it is our hope to create and develop more Campus Spirit events–so if your dept or organization has an idea for sponsoring something special, please contact Louis Coplin.

      Go green!

      Vance Valerio
      Interim VP of Enroll. Management and Student Dev.

  • Quiet and silent study in library for remainder of semester
    - Posted on December 6, 2017
    • To provide an academic environment conducive to study and learning, the Marvin Library Learning Commons will provide quiet (yellow) and silent (red) study areas only for the remainder of the semester.

  • Student Senate efforts benefit two relief projects
    - Posted on December 5, 2017
    • The Student Senate currently is involved in two community outreach projects.

      Students are working with Katie Pawloski, assistant professor in the Nursing Department, to assist hurricane victims in the Virgin Islands, where a multitude of items ranging from food to solar lights are needed, and hope that faculty and staff will join the effort.

      The list of needed items changes often, according to Pawloski. Therefore, donations of Amazon gift cards are highly recommended since they’re easy and inexpensive to ship and can be used for whatever items are in most demand at the moment.

      The Student Senate also is collecting new and/or gently-used clothing that will be donated to the Capital City Rescue Mission in Albany. Given the season, donations of hats, gloves, warm socks and coats are most welcome!
