Dispensary Assistants Course

Dispensary assistants play a critical role in the supply and delivery of prescription medicines to the community.  In recognition of this important role Guild Training has developed a course of study for the new dispensary assistants.

The Pharmacy Board of Australia states the ‘pharmacists may be assisted in the dispensing of medicines in the dispensing areas of a pharmacy business or pharmacy department, in accordance with the guidelines, by suitably trained persons’.

The Board requires that ‘pharmacists should ensure that dispensary assistants or dispensary technicians undertake and complete a recognised training course that provides them with the skills and knowledge to undertake under the supervision of a pharmacist, assist in the selection, processing and labelling of prescription medicines’.  The Dispensary Assistants Course developed by Guild Training meets this Pharmacy Board requirement.
