ProTrain’s Pharmacy Technician Career Prep course is now a PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Program for students pursuing their PTCB Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) credential.
Students who complete the course
through ProTrain will meet PTCB’s 2020 education/training eligibility
requirements for CPhT Certification.
Beginning in 2020, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE), required
for CPhT certification, will be updated to include revised knowledge areas.
The Pharmacy Technician Career Prep course prepares students to be professional Pharmacy Technicians dedicated to assisting Registered Pharmacists in quality pharmacy operational procedures. Graduates are equipped to assist the Pharmacist filling prescriptions according to doctor’s orders. Pharmacy Technicians also participate in ordering products and inventory control, as well as billing and receiving payments. Trained graduates that pass this course, are eligible to sit for a national certification exam. Once students pass the course and certification exam, they can submit an application to participate in an internship program with national affiliation partners like CVS and Walgreens, or local pharmacy operations near their residence. This internship is what many employers in this industry want to see that tells them the student is job ready for this high demand job.
ProTrain has been added to the list of North Carolina PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Programs on the PTCB website.
