Pharmacy Technician Course

  • Prepare for entry level employment in retail and hospital pharmacy environments by attending classes two days per week and completing online assignments. Upon successful completion of all coursework with a passing score of 70% or higher and 120 hours of externship in a workplace setting, students will qualify to be recommended for a California Pharmacy Technician License, and to apply to take the National Pharmacy Technician Exam. Class costs do not cover licensing fees.


    Prerequisites: Attend one of the Information Sessions on December 17, 2019 and pass pre-assessments. To obtain a California State Pharmacy Technician License, applicants must possess a high school diploma or equivalent.
    Fee: $1,760 (includes fees, tuition, materials, supplies, textbooks, standard fees for medical and background clearances, standard uniform, and externship supervision fees).

    Students will be responsible for the costs of extensive testing such as x-rays, if required to obtain TB clearance. Students with multiple names may be subject to additional charges for fingerprinting clearances. Learn about “NO COST TRAINING” for those who qualify and financial assistance at the Information Session.
