On Thursday, January 27, 2011 the Oxnard Adult School saw the culmination of it’s inaugural Pharmacy Technician course. Oxnard Adult School Principal, Judy Perkins was there to proudly hand out certificates to each graduate of the this very important class.

After enduring a rigorous 240-hour course, the 20 or so students of various ethnicities and ages became closely bonded. Many students likely formed bounds that will last their whole career, and quite possibly their lives.

The Pharmacy Technician Course is described as such:
This 240-hour course is designed to prepare students for employment in a pharmaceutical setting. The class consists of theory and clinical preparation to include: medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, pharmaceutical settings, duties and responsibilities of a pharmacy technician, pharmaceutical terms, abbreviations and symbols, metric and apothecary systems, drug requirements, record-keeping, dispensing prescriptions, and knowledge of manufacturing, packaging, and labeling of drug products, At the successful completion of this course, students will be qualified to register with the California State Board of Pharmacy as Registered Pharmacy Technicians.
