Why wait to begin training for a rewarding career as a pharmacy technician? The pharmacy technician program at Glendale Community College takes a unique approach by combining online and externship training! Unlike self-paced, online programs, GCC's pharmacy technician program is taught in real-time by a live instructor in a virtual classroom using Zoom technology. This 260-hour program covers topics such as pharmacology for technicians, pharmacy law and regulations, sterile and non-sterile compounding, quality assurance, and medication safety. Supplies will be mailed to students and skills will be taught virtually.
Program includes a 120-hour externship where you will receive hands-on training in a pharmacy under the direction of a pharmacist. This program fulfills the education requirements of the California Board of Pharmacy (Business and Professions Code Section 4202) for pharmacy technician licensure. Upon successful completion of the Pharmacy Technician program, you will be eligible to apply for your California Pharmacy Technician License.
