Do you have your eyes set on becoming a licensed pharmacist but would like to test the waters first by working as a pharmacy technician? Advanced eClinical Training (ACT) offers online pre-pharmacy programs that train you to work as a technician in just 12 weeks. You also have the opportunity to work with a mentor in our pharmacy mentorship program while enrolled in our online Pharmacy Technician Certification program.
If you’re interested in pursuing a career as a Pharmacist, our pre-pharmacy programs online prepare you to work in the fast-paced medical field. Here are just some of the courses you will complete while enrolled in our self-paced 12-week pre-pharmacy programs:
Once you have completed all 25 modules of coursework, your next step is to take an exam to become a Certified Pharmacy Technician. You can take the exam with the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board or the National Healthcareer Association. ACT covers the exam fee as part of your tuition expenses.
During the last few weeks of your online training, you will have the chance to review course materials, ask questions of your instructors, and collaborate with other students to ensure that you feel prepared on test day.
ACT is excited to announce our partnership with CVS and Walgreens, helping our students to gain hands-on experience as a pharmacy technician before accepting their first position. You need to complete all the coursework and pass the certification exam before applying for an externship.
This timeline isn’t practical for everyone who wants and needs to start working in the field sooner. If you can relate, pre-licensure nursing programs online may be just right for you. Advanced eClinical Training (ACT) is pleased to offer an eight-week pre-nursing program that you complete entirely online when it is most convenient for you to do so.
Our Pharmacy Mentorship Program gives you the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with a practicing PharmD. Your mentor was once in the same position that you are now and understands your challenges, one of which is preparing your application for pharmacy school. The two of you work together throughout the duration of your enrollment to ensure that you’re ready for the next step in your educational journey. Here is how the program works:
Besides assisting you with your pharmacy school application, your mentor is available to help you prepare your resume and practice interviewing you while playing the role of an employer in the pharmaceutical industry.
