“I was enrolled in the online program. Isabella is a wonderful instructor. Her presentation of the coursework made comprehension of the covered material much easier to understand. The program is affordable, and provides you with a sufficient amount of knowledge to not only take the national certification test, but also provides a great deal of knowledge for practical on-the-job application as well. If a great dummy like me can finish this course in 40 days, so can you!”

  • Who teaches your online course?

    Our online class is taught by Dr. Isabella Rodriguez. She holds a doctorate degree in pharmacy and started her career as a pharmacy technician. She brings 20 plus years of pharmacy experience to the table. Her passion for teaching is unparalleled and she can always capture the student's attention. Rx Tech Prep also has other instructors who teach primarily in the classroom program, but still contribute to the curriculum as a whole.

  • Are you accredited?

    We are certified and approved through the IBHE (Illinois Board of Higher Education) and the DSPS Educational Approval Program, formerly Wisconsin EAB. We are not accredited because we do not meet the requirements of having 600 plus program hours. Programs of that nature typically cost between $15,000 to $25,000 and are 9 months to 2 years.

  • Do you offer payment plans?

    Yes, for the online payment plan you pay $97 per month for 12 months. Books are not included.

  • What is the difference between the 2 national exams?

    The PTCB and the ICPT both offer national certification for pharmacy technicians. The PTCB exam is the PTCE (Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam). The ICPT exam is the ExCPT (Exam for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians). The PTCE is widely recognized, endorsed in every state, and has been around longer. However, there is no evidence that one is more difficult than the other. Some speculation has been mentioned on discussion boards that the ExCPT is more geared toward retail pharmacy and the PTCE is split more evenly with hospital pharmacy. Always check with your state to verify employment requirements.

  • Do you offer externships?

    Yes, we do although externships are not mandatory. We are currently approved for externships through CVS Pharmacies that are located nationwide. There is an additional application process for externships.
