Pharmacy Technician Training Program entry-level course

Fast food and retail jobs only take you so far. Before long it’s boring, there is no opportunity to advance, the pay is bad, and you just don’t want to do it any longer! How about a fast paced job in the ever expanding medical field? Pharmacy technicians are in demand. Due to the growing number of elderly in our population, medical jobs will be in demand well into the future. The Bureau of Labor Statistics1 predicts the demand for pharmacy technicians to grow by 9% in the next ten years. That is faster than average growth! 34,700 jobs are expected to be added in that time period. That’s great news!

If you are a motivated, self starter, you can be employed and earning a nice salary in as long as it takes you to study for the examination. No need to spend years and many thousands of dollars to acquire a degree for a career that will yield the same income.
