“We’re very proud to be launching the Career Step Pharmacy Technician training program,” said Mark Thomas, Career Step COO. “We have developed this program with the goal of providing our students the opportunity to quickly complete their training and find careers in the rapidly expanding pharmacy technician profession. With the help of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and subject matter experts, we’ve created a comprehensive Pharmacy Technician program that helps students gain all of the knowledge and skills they need to enter this field and begin earning a competitive income in as little as three months.”
According to the United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, the pharmacy technician occupation is one of the top 20 fastest growing in the nation. The Bureau estimates that the field will grow by 31% between 2008 and 2018, producing almost 100,000 new pharmacy technician jobs.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics also specifically notes that job prospects should be especially good for pharmacy technicians who have formal training or national certification. Career Step graduates have both of these advantages as they enter the workforce as they will have completed a comprehensive formal training program that helps them gain the knowledge and skills needed to confidently sit for the national certification exams.
“In these challenging economic times, Career Step is developing programs to help students train and get into the workforce very quickly after graduation,”
