pharmacy accuracy checking technicians (PACT)
PACT Training Programme
The PACT Training Programme is available through College, Education and Training, at PSNZ.
The PACT training programme is for pharmacy technicians who have a recognised NZ Level 5 Pharmacy Technician qualification (or demonstrated equivalence), a minimum of 2 years post-qualification work experience and a minimum of six months dispensing experience in their current dispensary. A qualified PACT has a different role to a pharmacy technician. A PACT is trained to carry out the final accuracy check on a dispensed item. If you would like more information about what it means to become a PACT, please see our “About the PACT Programme” section below.
