Montgomery County Community College and the University of the Sciences have partnered to offer a comprehensive 50-hour pharmacy technician training program to help meet the growing demand for employees in this field.
This 50-hour Pharmacy Technician Program prepares individuals to take the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) and provides an externship for students to gain practical experience in the field. The program will be held in the evenings, 6-9:30 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday, from April 9 through May 28 at MCCC’s West Campus in Pottstown.
To learn more about the program, interested persons can attend the information session on Tuesday, March 26, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at MCCC’s Workforce Development Division building, 95 S. Hanover Street, Pottstown. To register, contact Bernadette DeBias at 610-718-1967 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
MCCC and USciences have relationships with employers including CVS Health, which accepts this program as an educational component of their Pennsylvania Department of Labor registered Pharmacy Technician Apprentice program. CVS Health, one of the largest healthcare organizations in the country, works directly with MCCC to place students in 150-hour externships, or clinical experiences to give students the experience they need to obtain a job. Other externship opportunities may be available in acute care settings in Montgomery County.
