« back to classes page

Why wait to begin training for a rewarding career as a pharmacy technician? With heightened concerns for health and public safety, pharmacy technicians are in demand! Unlike self-paced, online programs, Río Hondo College’s pharmacy technician program is taught in real-time by a live instructor in a virtual classroom using Zoom technology. This 260-hour program covers topics such as pharmacology for technicians, pharmacy law and regulations, sterile and non-sterile compounding, quality assurance, and medication safety. Students will be mailed supplies and complete skills labs virtually.  Must be 18+ years of age and possess a high school diploma or GED. A clean background check is necessary for licensure in CA.
Students will need to have access to internet, PC, laptop, or tablet and access to a printer in order to participate. Program includes a 120-hour externship where you will receive hands-on training in a pharmacy under the direction of a pharmacist. Upon successful completion of the Pharmacy Technician program, you will be eligible to apply for your California Pharmacy Technician License. *
*This program fulfills the education requirements of the California Board of Pharmacy (Business and Professions Code Section 4202) for pharmacy technician licensure.
This training qualifies students to sit for either the PTCE (offered through the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board) or the ExCPT (offered through the National Healthcareer Association).
