    The Pharmacy Technician Program is a college level course with the objective to equip students with knowledge, technical skills, and employability skills required for an entry-level position in the pharmacy field or related area. Our teaching techniques encourage active student participation and may include group discussions and projects, laboratory work, simulations, demonstrations, field trips, guest speakers, and lectures. Students in this course are given the opportunity to participate in an unpaid externship program with local retail pharmacies in which they will work under the guidance of a Pharmacist. A strong emphasis is placed on ethics, accountability, professionalism, and the individual’s commitment to pursue lifelong personal and professional development. In addition, students who successfully complete the course and graduate will have the opportunity to sit for the (PTCE) Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam following graduation. Note that not all fees are required up front. Many of these expenses, the fee required, will be paid at the time it comes due by the party requiring that fee. Student must register for and be licensed Pharmacy Technician Trainees with the State of Texas and provide proof of this registration the first day of class. Offered at Career Center East Only
