When you’re deciding where and how to obtain your pharmacy technician training, you’ll want a school that offers high-quality education in the classroom, personalized support, and the opportunity to get your hands dirty with real-life experience. Being both knowledgeable and experienced will make you a top candidate for employment after you get your diploma. Arizona College’s Pharmacy Technician program gives you the best of both worlds. Not only does the program hold a strong focus on classroom education, but you’ll also receive an off-site externship following the program’s completion.
Open lab & tutoring sessions (by appointment), peer mentoring, and flexible morning and evening classes are some of our program benefits.
After completing a pharmacy technician training program, your next goal will be to become a certified pharmacy technician (CPhT).
Technicians require medical, administrative, and customer service skills, and enjoy the benefit and important responsibility of providing patients with the medications they need.
Due to COVID-19 we have implemented strict health and safety protocols including temperature checks, mask wearing, sanitizing, and distancing to protect our students and staff.
The pharmacy technician career is a rewarding line of work that demands attention to detail and the ability to thrive in a busy work setting. Pharmacy technicians play a critical role in providing quality patient care on behalf of a pharmacist by acting as gatekeepers for prescribed medications, compounds, and devices. Not only is the demand for pharmacy technicians growing, but it is also a rewarding career path that allows you to work in the medical & pharmaceutical field. This program is offered at our Glendale and Mesa campuses.
