Pharmacy Technician Certificate & Degree Course Sequences

Getting Started

This program has special admission requirements and enrollment limits. The first step to entering the following program is to take part in an assessment process, which includes taking the college’s free placement test and meeting with Chemeketa’s Advising and First Year Programs staff.

For admission to the program, an application is required. This is a separate step from testing and assessment. Applications are available in Advising and First Year Programs, Enrollment Services, program offices, and online. Should you have any questions, contact the Health Sciences Department at 503.399.5058.

Students are required to submit a copy of their current American Heart Association Healthcare Provider CPR cards and completed immunization forms prior to registration in the first term of the program. Students must also pass a criminal background check, be fingerprinted, and undergo drug testing (pursuant to OAR 855.010.0045). Practicum sites also require student licensure from the Oregon Board of Pharmacy.

Be sure to review the catalog for important information about program outcomes and other details not found in this listing.
