The course includes a comprehensive review that prepares students to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination. The course includes 77 hours of classroom time covering skills, drills and math practice, and an online theory component through a learning management system.

To take the course, students must be at least 18 years old, have completed high school or its equivalent, and be competent in basic computers, Internet, printing and email usage. Students enrolling in the course must also successfully complete an English and math pre-assessment test.

Financial assistance is available for students who want to enroll in the course.
