Program Goals

Our pharmacy technician online program prepares you for introductory level positions as a pharmacy technician.  It also prepares you to become certified through PTCB or NHA. While some pharmacy technician jobs require additional training, we help you gain the foundational skills needed for career positions in retail, hospital, or government positions.    


Curriculum

The ELTC will include medication nomenclature, medication interactions,  medical abbreviations, prescription writing and interpretation, formulations and routes of administration, compounded sterile non-sterille products, law and ethics, order entry and processing, inventory mangement, and administrative duties of pharmacy personnel.


Length

To complete the program requires at least 24 weeks of instruction.  It's divided into 6 modules with a virtual externship lab and capstone; all of which are delivered exclusively via distance education (i.e., on-line).


Upon graduation from our program, you will receive your Pharmacy Techncian Certificate attesting to your accomplishment.   While most Pharmacy Technicians will find a career inside of the community side of the pharmaceutical industry, there are many opportunities to find careers in a variety of enviornements.  The places includes institutional pharmacies like hospitals, nursing or assisted living homes, compounding pharmacies, chemotherapy pharmacies, and mail-order pharmacies.
