Studying Pharmacy Technician at Academy New Zealand saw graduate Reuben Jones step into a pharmacy role immediately after completing the course.
Reuben, who graduated with a New Zealand Certificate in Pharmacy (Pharmacy Technician) Level 5 from Academy in November of 2012, now has a role as the sole Dispensing Technician at Silverdale Clinic Pharmacy.
Previously a Barista before studying at Academy, Reuben says he wouldn’t have been able to get his role at Silverdale Clinic Pharmacy if it wasn’t for the Pharmacy Technician course at Academy, or for the assistance Academy gave him in obtaining a work placement while he was studying.
“Academy set me up with a work placement at Orewa Care Chemist, which gave me the experience I needed to get a full-time position.”
Not only did the Pharmacy Technician course enable him to get a pharmacy role, he made long-term friends during the course, and enjoyed it immensely.
“I enjoyed every part of studying at Academy, especially the tutors, the long-term friends I made, and the easy-to-learn hands-on curriculum. I would recommend the course to others.”
