THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Southern Regional Technical College is starting a new program to help alleviate a shortage of pharmacy technicians.
School Officials say pharmacy departments at several South Georgia hospitals asked them to start a pharmacy tech program. It's a non-credit program offered through the school's economic development program, but it will prepare people for in-demand jobs.
"Once they complete these requirements they will be qualified to sit for the certification examination that will certify them as a pharmacy technician," said Dennis Lee, Vice President for Economic Development.
The seven and a half week program kicks off in October and includes an 80-hour internship at a hospital or a pharmacy.
