Newly revised Pharmacy Technician program starts February 2013

The need for certified Pharmacy Technicians is growing dramatically in the West Michigan area. Pharmacy Technicians who have achieved certification are in high demand and have great earning potential.

If you are interested in working in the medical field, or are currently working in a pharmacy but would like to be certified, GRCC’s Pharmacy Technician program will prepare you for the next step. This newly revised and updated 18-week pre-certification class will take you through everything you need to know to be ready to take the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Board Exam. Using textbooks from the American Pharmacists Association, this course will prepare you to be a pharmacy technician at the retail or hospital level. Course goals include completing an internship at a local pharmacy and taking the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam.

The course runs 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting February 12, 2013. The cost is $1,580, and a payment plan is available. To register, click here.
