Penn Foster
Online PharmTech Program

This page discusses the Penn Foster Online PharmTech Program.

Today, pharmacy technicians are in high demand across the country. However, many people do not have the luxury of taking off enough time to attend the colleges or universities that offer such program. The good news is that Penn Foster is now providing an online pharmacy technician program that allows students to achieve their degree at their pace.

How the Program Works

Completing the online pharmacy technician degree is possible in as little as 9 months. This means you can be ready to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) and ExCPT certification examination after completing the program so you can become a pharmacy technician.

In addition to getting the education needed to take the exams, you can gain real-world experience at Walgreens or CVS/Pharmacy. This hands-on approach lets you experience the day to day activities of real pharmacy techs as they work with customers, fill out orders, and do all the necessary work that is part of their job.

Cost: Because the program is online, the tuition is a fraction compared to standard college and university courses. As with all programs offered by Penn Foster, you can start with an initial payment of just $1 or if you pay for the entire tuition at once, save 25% on the total. Otherwise, you can make a small monthly payment over the next 9 months along with associated fees to earn your degree.

Support: There is financial support available for those who qualify meaning that you can save even more money when taking this online program. You will need to contact the financial assistance office for more details and how you can qualify for lower tuition rates.

There are many reasons why you should consider taking the online program starting with the ability to set your own pace in completing the course.

National Accreditation: This program is regionally and nationally accredited which means that it follows proper state and federal guidelines. You are learning from the best and what is provided gives you the best chance to pass the exams and become a pharmacy technician.

Take It Wherever You Go: Thanks to being online, you can work at the program while in the comfort of your own home, during breaks at work, or anywhere you have an internet connection. The custom learning platform works well on computers and mobile devices.

Success Coaches: As part of the program, you will have a dedicated success coach who provides guidance in your studies. It’s like having your own tutor available to help you become successful and motivate you to succeed.
