College to Receive Funds to Offer Certified Pharmacy Technician Training
MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange has received a Reimagine Workforce Preparation Training grant from the State University of New York (SUNY) to deliver expanded Certified Pharmacy Technician training programming.
SUNY has provided an anticipated $148,296 for SUNY Orange to further collaborate with local employers and community-based organizations to expand its comprehensive Pharmacy Technician instruction. The proposed training model is an expansion of a highly successful training program recently developed and delivered by SUNY Orange’s Continuing and Professional Education (CAPE) division, along with its partners in the healthcare field, and is the result of the partnership’s increased collaborations with the business community.
“The healthcare industry in the Hudson Valley is growing at a rapid pace,” said David Kohn, director of Continuing and Professional Education. “This grant will allow SUNY Orange to continue to assist community members as they look to improve their lives by gaining the tools they need to secure employment or enhance their skills.”
Participants in the program will prepare for a career as a Certified Pharmacy Technician by completing the following instructional modules: Pharmacy Technician; College and Career Readiness (which includes study skills, exam taking skills, career and academic programs, career planning, job market discussion, healthcare careers, preparing for college, business writing and communication); as well as an externship work experience. The program can be completed in approximately four months.
