Community Pharmacy Qualifications

New Community Pharmacy qualifications for pharmacy assistants

Are you looking for targeted training to build capability and confidence?

Pharmacy assistants provide customers with medicines and pharmacy products to help them with common illnesses and health conditions. They are also a vital link between the customer and the pharmacist.

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia is a nationally Registered Training Organisation (RTO 0452) that offers a wide range of training options. Accredited training can help ensure pharmacy customers receive the best advice, care and health solutions.

Skills developed through accredited training can also provide career growth and opportunities, helping pharmacy assistants to secure their future in community pharmacy.

Guild Training offers learning solutions – including certificate-level qualifications – to ensure the best outcome for both pharmacy assistants and the pharmacy, resulting in increased sales, health advice and customer service.

We have redeveloped our Community Pharmacy qualifications to ensure they meet the needs of pharmacy assistants.

This redevelopment includes the:

  • SIR20116 - Certificate II in Community Pharmacy
  • SIR30116 - Certificate III in Community Pharmacy
  • SIR40116 - Certificate IV in Community Pharmacy
  • SIR40216 - Certificate IV in Community Pharmacy Dispensary
  • SIRCIND002 - Support the supply of Pharmacy Medicines and Pharmacist Only Medicine

Guild Training offers highly qualified trainer and assessors with extensive pharmacy experience to deliver a range of courses for all levels of experience.

Government funding opportunities may be available – contact your branch training manager to discuss eligibility and find out more about the new qualifications.
