William T. McFatter High School & Technical College Get 1st Look at New Pharmacy Lab

William T. McFatter Technical College and High School celebrated the opening of its new Pharmacy Lab with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. After the ceremony, students in the Pharmacy Technician program demonstrated how the lab enhances their learning opportunities by offering an environment that emulates real-world work experiences.

The new Pharmacy Lab directly aligns with the Broward Country Public Schools (BCPS) commitment to providing high-quality education in technical fields and specifically addresses the needs of William T. McFatter Technical College’s Pharmacy Technician program in meeting accreditation standards. The project was made possible through Workforce Development funds.

The Pharmacy Technician Program at William T. McFatter Technical College and High School is a comprehensive program designed to prepare students for a career in the health science field, specifically as pharmacy technicians. The program covers various aspects necessary for students to become skilled pharmacy technicians. The program consists of different courses that provide both theoretical knowledge and practical skills.

The program offers a hybrid delivery method, meaning students will engage in both in-person and online coursework. This requires students to have daily access to a computer with Internet, a valid email address, and all necessary hardware and software components required by the program.

After completing the program, students will be prepared to obtain the Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) credential and become a Florida Board of Pharmacy Licensed technician (RPhT).

In addition, the school is also celebrating its newly remodeled media center. Guests had an opportunity to visit the media center following the Pharmacy Lab ribbon-cutting ceremony. The media center renovations are part of the District’s SMART program.
