PassAssured is Born
With David's vast assorted experience in the pharmacy community, a common denominator continued to surface concerning the need for qualified technicians. The need for certified pharmacy technicians and a mechanism for providing the pharmacy industry with these technically trained individuals has become a personal challenge to David.
He worked diligently with his own staff providing coaching to boost their skill level. Still more was needed to provide the industry with a source of qualified technicians. David began working with a local college to co-develop a training program aimed specifically at developing individuals into certified pharmacy technicians.
After experiencing the hardships of individuals attending college, he felt an alternate process needed to be developed. A process that provides a structured and disciplined training program, but without the hardships and financial obligations involved in attending a college.
The continued high demand for this specialized training brought a need for searching further into communities for potential certified pharmacy technician candidates. David structured a contact seminar to bring training opportunities to different regions across Texas. Thus, reaching a varied population of qualified individuals.
The next evolution in making this specialized training available in every home was the creation of PassAssured. PassAssured's multimedia products can provide structured training to any individual with a personal computer.
With clearly defined objectives, PassAssured was born.
