Registration open for pharmacy technician training at NRCC

Dec 21 2018

Registration is open for an evening session of New River Community College’s pharmacy technician program.

The program will meet for 11 weeks beginning January 8 and will run from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at NRCC in Dublin.

The course teaches students information, techniques and procedures needed to assist the pharmacist in the delivery of pharmaceutical products and services. The main objective is to provide students with a working knowledge of most aspects of pharmacy in community and institutional practice settings.

Upon completion, graduates will be eligible to apply for registration as a Pharmacy Technician in Virginia and be prepared to take the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) exam.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of pharmacy technicians is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026. The average annual wage in Virginia is $31,510.

The regular price for the program is $1,950; but, with special state funding the discounted price is $650. Additional financial assistance may also be available.

This course is one of eight NRCC FastForward programs that provides affordable and short-term training through the Office of Workforce Development.
