As the medical field advances and the population ages, prescriptions and pharmacies are only going to become more essential.
Fortunately, our affordable online Pharmacy Technician Career Diploma program may help you get started toward an exciting career in this field.
But what exactly does a pharm tech do? From filling out prescriptions to interacting with customers, pharm techs assist pharmacists with numerous jobs around the pharmacy. Pharmacy technicians are well-trained and highly respected professionals.
These are just a few of the many tasks that pharmacist technicians must perform. It’s critical to obtain accurate information and to handle medication properly. That's why many pharmacists will only hire trained and certified pharmacy technicians. Our program may help prepare you for the National Healthcareer Association’s (NHA's) ExCPT Pharmacy Technician certification exam or the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board’s (PTCB) Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE). Through our program you may also receive on-the-job training in a pharmacy externship with Walmart or CVS.
Many states require techs to be certified. Even in states that don't require a certification, having one may be an advantage when you try to land a job.
If you want to get involved in the pharmaceutical industry, earning your certification may be the first step. Request free information on Ashworth College’s pharmacy technician training to learn more.
