Should i get my pharmacy tech license online with Penn foster, or at a community college? ?

Penn foster is cheaper, but will I be taught what I need to know? Will companies and clinics hire me if my license is from penn foster?

    Just to be clear, the purpose of the Penn Foster Pharmacy Technician program is to prepare you for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board, Inc. (PTCB) national certification Board Exam (PTCE). Also, this program includes a Work Experience Option (WEO) where you can obtain 200 of supervised field experience.

    Licensing, by definition, is handled by the state licensing bureau and not the school. Please check with your state's licensing agency to determine the requirements in your state. Usually you can search the name of your state along with the words "Board of Pharmacy". Then look for Pharmacy Technician licensing requirements. Most states require a National Certification like the PTCE.

    Also, Penn Foster has many students that complete the program and the PTCE Certification. This is a very popular program and our students are very active in the discussion group. If you would like to chat with Pharmacy Technician students and alumni, there is a link provided below.

    If I were hiring a for a pharmacy tech position, I would prefer a candidate whose education was hands-on in a classroom, rather than on-line.
