Training and Certification (Pharmacy Technician)
Summary: In this podcast, I introduce the requirements for becoming a pharmacy technician. One of the key first steps is to determine what your state requires to become a pharmacy technician. This is because each state decides what their pharmacy technician requirements are. The rest of the podcast discusses the 2 major national certification organizations (PTCB and ExCPT) as well as formal training programs (online and campus based).
