Spaces are still open in two career technical education classes that began this week at the Davis Adult School. There is still time to enroll.
A class to become a pharmacy technician began Monday. This class is for students who want to earn certification as a pharmacy technician, which includes assisting the pharmacist with mixing and packaging prescriptions, referring clients to the pharmacist for counseling, inventory control and purchasing, collecting payment and coordinating billing. This course prepares students for eligibility to register with the State Board of Pharmacy.
A class to become a clinical medical assistant began Tuesday. Students will learn to assist the physician with procedures, caring for patients, performing simple laboratory tests and administering medications. The course provides a training opportunity to enter the health care field.
These classes are offered by Davis Adult and Community Education in partnership with Boston Reed College. For information, financial assistance options, registration and to sign up for a free online information session, visit www.BostonReedCollege.com or call 800-201-1141.
