Why Become A Pharmacy Technician?View of three pharmacist smiling for the camera

The US department of Labor projects more than 28,000 Pharmacy Technician jobs over the next 10 years which is a good incentive for interested persons to become trained in this field. In addition, this can be done without having to spend years acquiring a College Degree. The recommendation for admission to this field is a High School Diploma and Certification by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB).
