Posted on: January 10, 2007

pharmacy technician programYou probably didn’t know that it only takes 8 months to train to become a Pharmacy Technician.

Well, it’s quick if you know the right type of college to attend.

If you’re serious about working in a pharmacy, then consider joining a full-time pharmacy technician program.

A typical 8 month program at Everest College includes pharmacy training in:

  • Pharmacy administration
  • Pharmaceutical calculations
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems
  • Medical terminology
  • Pharmacology
  • Health care systems

What makes Everest College’s pharmacy technician program great is that the education is focused on hands-on training.

Pharmacy technician students don’t just sit in a chair and listen to a lecture; they actually start learning dosage calculations and measurements by doing it.

Everest College believes that the best way to train future Pharmacy Technicians is by allowing them to learn by doing—not simply sitting in a classroom.

Everest College also believes it’s important for Pharmacy Technician students to get real-world experience. So the Pharmacy Technician classes not only include hands-on training, but most programs also include externships.

Pharmacy Technician externships give students a chance to practice their skills on the job. This means they get course credit for actually working in a pharmacy. And the best part about this is that Everest College sets up the externship for you.

Everest College offers Pharmacy Technician programs at campuses in the following major cities:

  • Arlington (Mid Cities), Texas
  • Aurora, Colorado
  • Ft. Worth, Texas
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • San Francisco, CA
