Asher College of Sacramento Now Offers AAS Degree in Pharmacy Technology

Asher College of Sacramento is announcing a new program offering an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Pharmacy Technology.

Sacramento, CA - January 15, 2020 —

Asher College of Sacramento will now offer an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Pharmacy Technology. Committed to training high-quality job candidates for in-demand careers, Asher College’s new AAS program furthers this commitment by extending its existing program offerings in the field of healthcare services.

Pharmacy technicians work hand-in-hand with pharmacists and are essential to the success of pharmacies. These important healthcare professionals are responsible for helping licensed pharmacists fill and dispense medications prescribed to patients by medical professionals. Responsibilities of pharmacy technicians include establishing and maintaining patient record files, submitting insurance claim forms, and managing prescription and over-the-counter medication inventories. Pharmacy technicians often interact directly with patients and must understand and abide by HIPAA, Federal and State regulations concerning confidentiality.

The AAS Pharmacy Technology program at Asher College is a Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB)-recognized education/training program. Students learn essential skills to be employable in entry-level positions, including how to fill prescriptions under the direct supervision of a pharmacist, utilize relevant software applications, recognize the classifications of drugs and scheduled drugs, understand brand, generic, and OTC (over the counter) medications, adhere to HIPAA privacy regulations, and comprehend and perform insurance procedures. Asher’s pharmacy technology program is an Associate of Applied Science degree program, so there are also general education requirements, which include American Government, Business Math, and Business Communication. Students can complete the certification portion of the AAS program in as little as 45 weeks, allowing them to pursue their Pharmacy Technician certification from the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB), apply for state licensure with the California Board of Pharmacy and begin working in their field while finishing up the additional courses for the degree.

Asher College’s mission is to prepare students for new careers through quality, market-driven career education. Asher also offers Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificate programs for careers in information technology, administrative health services, and business administration and has additional locations in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Dallas, Texas. Asher is monitored on graduation and placement rates to maintain accreditation through the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET); this accreditation shows that the school and its program meet national standards.

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Aug 14, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction. So, the pair is working together using data from sources such as satellites, sonar and radar to keep a closer eye on how many whales are in the ocean. The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Aug 14, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Aug 14, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Aug 14, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
