Course Overview

This Career Step program is comprised of online and experiential training, providing 24/7 access to all material and allowing students to progress through the training at their own schedule and at their own pace. The program is broken into online modules, or course subjects, all of which focus on helping students build the essential knowledge and skills of a pharmacy technician. The final exam of the course is designed to provide an experience similar to that of the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) Exam, ensuring that you are as prepared as possible to sit for national certification immediately upon completion.

Pharmacy technicians are crucial to keeping a pharmacy running smoothly, and their role is evolving due to the rapidly growing healthcare industry. As the duties of a pharmacist expand, taking a more active role with patient consultations and offering flu shots in some pharmacies pharmacy technicians are also taking on more responsibilities.
