Pharmacy Technician (Online)

Pharmacy technicians are an integral part of any pharmacy team. You’ve probably already seen these allied healthcare professionals working alongside pharmacists in retail locations, but they can also be found in hospitals and long-term care facility pharmacies. These vital team members earn a great income and are responsible for filling prescriptions, organizing inventory, processing insurance claims/payments, and working with customers to ensure they understand their medications and the instructions for use. 

The Pharmacy Technician (ASHP/ACPE) online program prepares students for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) Exam and is accredited by ASHP/ACPE. Students will complete a work experience with a local pharmacy such as Walgreens or CVS to fulfill graduation requirements. In addition to one-on-one instructor support, students receive a laboratory kit, ebooks, and an exam voucher. With full-time study, the program can be completed in as little as four months!

Certification Requirements:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • Have a high school diploma or a General Education Development Certificate (GED). There are no specific skills or experience that are considered prerequisites for entry into our training program.
