Online/Correspondence Pharmacy Technician Training Programs – Scroll down to see Campus Based Schools for this State. Due to Utah’s requirement for 180 hours of experiential education or on-the-job training, online programs are typically not an option for Utah. However, in the February 28th, 2012 Board of Pharmacy meeting, Career Step was approved for the state of Utah (with the externship).
