    How do you keep yourself up to date on new medications and practices in the field?

      In a constantly changing field, Pharmacy Technicians must stay up to date to keep up with the times on the job. Your interviewer will be looking to hear that you are invested in your career by seeking further education for yourself in the field. Be sure to talk about any training you attend, publications you read or career related groups that you belong to.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Having worked in the field for what has been eight short years, a lot has changed in that time. New drugs are continuously being approved by the FDA and new regulations are passed regularly as well. By being certified as a tech, I have greatly looked forward to and taken part in the continuing education requirements. These credits have enabled me to be able to learn and adapt to a changing career."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Being new to the field, I became a member of the NPTA and receive both the "Technician Today" magazine and their e-newsletters. After just starting to receive these, I can see that I will be able to learn a lot about changes in the field moving forward."

      Ryan's Answer

      "So much has changed in this field during my career that furthering myself and my knowledge has been critical and will continue to be in the future. I have been a certified technician for many years and look forward to continuing education credits to maintain the certification. Last year, I took a CE credit course in third party reimbursements and learned a lot about changes that have taken place in government funded reimbursements for medication."
