eHealth Pharmacy Technician

What can you get from becoming a certified Pharmacy Technician?

The Pharmacy Technician profession has become indispensable to the healthcare field. Pharmacy Techs help licensed pharmacists prepare prescription medications, provide customer service, and perform administrative duties within a pharmacy setting. Due to the growing demand for Pharmacy Techs, certification has become an important issue for many industry employers and some state legislatures. This hybrid course through BCC eHealthCareers focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to pass the National Certification exam as well as preparing students for the competitive field of pharmacy technicians.

What is the job outlook for Pharmacy Technicians?

With the number of middle-aged and elderly people growing, the demand for prescription drugs and pharmacy workers is expected to boom throughout the next decade. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median hourly wage for pharmacy technicians was $13.32 as of 2008. Job opportunities are expected to remain good, especially for those with previous experience, formal training, or certification.
