Most pharmacy employers seek applications who are certified. The New York Institute of Career Development's online Pharmacy Technician Course is your pathway to certification.
Getting certified as a Pharmacy Technician ensures that you have the credentials that hiring managers are looking for.
There are two main pharmacy technician certifications that this course prepares you to take:
When you graduate from NYICD’s Pharmacy Technician Course, you can choose either certification exam. You will gain access to a study guide and practice exam to help you prepare for the real thing, at no added cost to you. And when you are ready to take the certification exam, we will pay for you to do that.
Your Pharmacy Technician Course tuition covers the cost of the pharmacy technician certification exam study guide and practice test. This is important for anyone who wishes to succeed in the field. The pharmacy technician certification practice test will ensure that you are ready to pass the exam upon completion of the NYICD course.
The certification exam will test your knowledge of the typical procedures and tasks that a pharmacy technician is expected to do. And you will feel confident that your Pharmacy Technician Course, along with the exam study guide, cover everything you will need to know to pass the test and get certified.
Armed with your certification, you’ll be ready to join this growing field. If you have additional questions about certification, give us a call at 1-800-239-9275.
