Pharmacy Tech Technical Standards

Technical Standards and Essential Functions

The following technical standards and essential functions outline reasonable expectations of a student in the Pharmacy Technician Program for the performance of common pharmacy technician functions.  The pharmacy technician student must be able to apply the knowledge and skills necessary to function in a variety of classroom, lab and/or clinical situations while providing the essential competencies of pharmacy technicians. These requirements apply for the purpose of admission and continuation in the program.


All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply to the program. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the Student Accessibility Services Office if they require a reasonable accommodation for one or more of the technical standards listed. Each TVCC campus offers support services for students with documented physical or psychological disabilities. Students with disabilities must request reasonable accommodations through the Student Accessibility Services Office on the campus where they expect to take the majority of their classes. Students are encouraged to do this a minimum of three weeks before the start of each semester.


 Health Sciences programs establish technical standards and essential functions to insure that students have the abilities required to participate and potentially be successful in all aspects of the respective programs.  Students are required to meet technical standards and essential functions for the Pharmacy Technician Program as indicated below.  If an applicant or student is unable to meet all of the outlined standards, he/she may be withdrawn from the program.
