Our Pharmacy Technician Career Diploma program may help prepare you for the healthcare field. After earning your diploma, you may need to standout to potential employers. Here are four things pharmacies want to see in every new hire.
Any pharmacy tech can be trained to fill a prescription. That’s all many customers need. It’s when customers feel poorly that they really need a pharmacy that can deliver more than medication. Your potential employers know their customer base can include everyone from exhausted caretakers to patients who are too sick to think straight. Show them you’re the pharmacy tech who can display patience and compassion to every customer who walks through the door.
Details are not everyone’s strong suit and that’s okay, but they’re non-negotiable in a pharmacy. Potential employers need to know you can be trusted absolutely with the medications that are both life-saving and life-threatening depending on the dosage.
Don’t take for granted that all aspiring pharmacy techs excel at details. Highlight your skills! Let your potential employers know that you can accurately
In some states, you must be certified or licensed before you can work in a pharmacy. But, even if you plan to work in a state that has no requirement, holding your (CPhT) certification shows potential employers that your skills meet an industry standard. Being a CPhT may increase your employment opportunities or boost your pay, too.
Ashworth College’s program tuition includes the CPhT exam by the National Healthcareer Association or Pharmacy Technician Certification Board and that makes it easy for you to choose one you prefer.*

Real world experience is important. That’s why it may be beneficial to study in a pharmacy technician training program that includes an internship or externship.
No matter how hard you study or how high your GPA is, working alongside experienced professionals teaches you things you’ll never get from a lesson plan. Being a student in a real work environment allows you the chance to ask every question, overcome nerves, and even discover your own likes and dislikes about your potential career paths. In the end, you’ll graduate with experience for your resume, a reference, and maybe some job leads, too.
*Certification exam prerequisites vary. Please check with NHS and PTCB for their requirements.
