Pharmacy technicians enjoy a rewarding career in the constantly growing and evolving field of health care and prescription medicine while maintaining a stable and straightforward work environment.
With College of the Desert’s Pharmacy Technician Certification Training program in partnership with MK Education, make it possible for you to build on your existing career rather than start a new one from scratch—and we help you do it around the busy work schedule and family obligations you already have.
As a certified pharmacy technician, you are the liaison between medical professionals, doctors, pharmacists, insurance companies and patients. You will receive and verify prescriptions and prepare patient medication.
Our Pharmacy Technician Certification Program is designed to help you advance your current health care career or to find entry-level employment in this field. You can feel confident that this flexibility also comes with high standards in training and education. Get started in an undergraduate certificate program and earn credential employers recognize.
