Description

Pharmacy Technicians learn the essential skills needed to work in a pharmacy, process prescription medications and assist the pharmacist. Blackstone’s curriculum covers a range of topics including working knowledge of medical and pharmaceutical terminology, pharmacy calculations, pharmacology, body systems and disorders, ethics, and professionalism. To enhance your knowledge and skills Blackstone also includes prep materials and exam costs for PTCE certification. 


Through established partnerships with Walgreens and CVS Pharmacy, our required externship allows students to apply the knowledge and skills learned through our pharmacy technician training program in a real-world environment. 


The combination of Blackstone’s Pharmacy Technician Program and the 160-hour externship will prepare you to pass the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination (PTCE), administered by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB), and earn national recognition as a CPhT (Certified Pharmacy Technician).
