As we noted earlier this week, the Kansas Board of Regents has approved our Pharmacy Technician class and we’re accepting student applications now. The course is available nationwide. Pharmacy jobs are growing by leaps and bounds, and entry level salaries and benefits can be quite generous. It’s also a stable profession and with continuing education opportunities (usually paid by an employer), you can expect to make a career in the field. Our inaugural class starts October 18th, so sign up now to jump start the next stage of your career!
If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge as a Pharmacy Technician, we also offer Pharmacy Assistant training. This 45-hour class will prepare you for an entry-level job in a pharmacy setting. It’s a great way to test the waters and see if pharmacy work might be something you would enjoy. It’s also a good stepping stone to the Pharmacy Technician class. The Pharmacy Assistant class is open enrollment, so you can start as soon as you order your textbook and are ready to begin. From that point, you’ll have 90 days to complete the course, and you may access it any time that is convenient for you. This is perfect for full-time workers or parents who want to increase their earning potential and need the flexibility of an online class.
Both Pharmacy classes make you eligible to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination (PTCE.) Candidates that pass the PTCE are permitted to use the Certified Pharmacy Technician credential, “CPht.” The PTCB certification program is the only pharmacy technician certification program accredited by the National Commission of Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
