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 training and classroom 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. Most pharmacy technician skills will be taught virtually. A classroom lab day has been scheduled at the end of the program to give students the opportunity to learn sterile and non-sterile compounding.

Program includes a 120-hour externship where you will receive hands-on training in a pharmacy under the direction of a pharmacist. Upon successful completion of the Pharmacy Technician program, you will be eligible to apply for your California Pharmacy Technician License. *

Students must purchase a required textbook. Attend the FREE orientation for more information.
