The New York Institute of Career Development (NYICD) is proud to partner with national pharmacy chains, CVS and Walgreens, for their online Pharmacy Technician Course
. This partnership provides all students the opportunity to fulfill their required externship at a conveniently-located and nationally-recognized pharmacy.
CVS and Walgreens Pharmacies are household names, providing superior affordability, stellar service and unparalleled accessibility for many decades. To complement an otherwise fully-online educational experience, students will receive in-person, hands-on training and networking opportunities during their externship. This experience is critical to getting certified and hired in the field.

provides students everything they need to start a career in the industry. All students receive top quality curriculum accessible at all hours from any internet-connected device, personal mentorship from industry professionals, and an externship with our esteemed partners. After completion, students will be fully prepared to pass the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) offered by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) or the Pharmacy Technician Certification (ExCPT) offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
“We’ve designed our Pharmacy Technician Course curriculum to the highest possible standard,” said Thomas Frisco, a long time pharmacy technician instructor and student advisor for the New York Institute of Career Development. “It is both incredibly exciting and deeply satisfying that our students will have the opportunity to receive practical training from pharmacies that share our passion for excellence.”
