Enrolments are now open for the fourth intake of the government subsidised Certificate II in Community Pharmacy (SIR20112) training
Available under the Queensland Government’s Community Work Skills Initiative, the program is operated by the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Branch.
Commencing on April 24, the program runs from Guild House in Brisbane and provides opportunities for Queensland residents to kick-start their career in pharmacy.
Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Pharmacy Practice State Manager, Kathy Knack says the course is an excellent first step for those interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy.
“Having trained pharmacy staff available to assist the needs of customers is vital in delivering quality health outcomes for all Australians,” she says.
“A Certificate II in Community Pharmacy provides the skills necessary to succeed in an entry level role in pharmacy. The course is perfect for recent school leavers, those wanting to get back into the workforce, or those looking for a career change,” Ms Knack says.
The Certificate II in Community Pharmacy is a six-week, full-time course delivered by pharmacy experts and provides students with real-world experiences and knowledge in the classroom.
The program provides graduates with job placement assistance at the end of the course.
Ms Knack says that a key aspect of the course is the two week vocational placement, which provides students with work experience in a pharmacy environment.
“The work experience component is the best way for students to further develop the skills they have learnt in the classroom, in a practical setting,” she says.
