Health Care Training Services Courses
This program is a 42 hour instructor taught course.
The completion of the Pharmacy Technician Training Program will prepare the participant to work in a variety of settings including both retail (i.e. Chain Store or Independent) and institutional pharmacy (i.e. Hospital) settings. Pharmacy technicians work under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist. They perform such tasks as filling prescriptions, packaging medication, inventory control and record keeping.
The Pharmacy Technician training program is a preparatory class for the national exam and a good solid background for working in the field as a pharmacy technician. In Massachusetts you cannot be licensed unless you are nationally certified by EXCEPT or PTCB and have worked for 500 hours as a Pharmacy Technician trainee.
In Rhode Island you do not need to work the 500 hours to get a pharmacy technician license. We do, however, recommend that students work at least 6 months in the field prior to attempting the PTCB exam. There are many things covered in the classroom but technicians may encounter various situations in the field that cannot be covered in the class.
Proudly serving Massachusetts ( MA ) and Rhode Island ( RI ).
