The Pharmacy Technician program prepares students for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) Exam. Students study pharmacology, pharmaceutical calculations, nonsterile compounding, and pharmacy law, regulations, and standards as well as topics specific to working in retail or institutional pharmacies. During the training, students have the opportunity to participate in an on-site externship at a local Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, or independent pharmacy. In addition to one-on-one support from experienced instructors throughout the course and access to personalized graduate support after graduation, students receive e-books, a drug reference handbook, and a PTCB Exam voucher.
The course, currently pending ASHP accreditation, connects students with an externship partner so they can fulfill graduation requirements. In addition to one-on-one instructor support, students will receive a lab kit, ebooks, and an exam voucher.
NOTE: This is a self-paced online course. You may start at any time.
