Course Description

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS), employment of pharmacy technicians is expected to increase by 9% from 2014 to 2024. The BLS also suggests that pharmacy technicians with formal education or training, previous work experience, and national certification will be specifically sought after to meet these demands.*

Pharmacy Technicians obtain and prepare prescriptions, maintain patient profiles, prepare insurance claim forms, stock and take inventory of over the counter medications, as well as assisting customers.

In order to be licensed as a pharmacy technician, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) requires:

  • High school diploma or equivalent educational diploma (e.g., a GED or foreign diploma)
  • Passing score on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE)
  • Full disclosure of all criminal and State Board of Pharmacy registration or licensure actions
  • Compliance with all applicable PTCB certification policies
  • Beginning in 2020, all prospective pharmacy technicians will be required to attend an accredited certification program

Ohio Revised Code 4729.42 requires that all pharmacy technician students must be at least 18 years old. They must also have a high school diploma or equivalent in order to be certified and seek employment. A background check is also required by the state. The background check must indicate that the person has not plead guilty to or been found guilty of a felony in Ohio, in any other state, or in the United States.

The certification testing upon successful completion of this training program is offered through the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.
