I think the pharmacy tech website is www.pctb.com or .org.... I checked into it about a year ago.. I have been a tech for 9 1/2 years. Let me know if you need help. I hope that is the right website...

That's where I found out how to be certified, but I was trained on the job. I know some school around here teaches it, but there is no need to go to school for it cause you can still be trained on the job.

don't pay for schooloing for pharm tech, the best training is hands on. If you can convince some place to hire you and train you, its the best way. I started when I was 16, some one took a chance on me, and about 15 yrs later I still do it, part time , because I'm a stay at home mom for the most part.
It has alot to do on your age, personality and maturity level. They are not going to hire a young kid who acts like an idiot because the pharmacy has to have employees they can rely on to be there and not call in "sick" on a whim. I think some companies have an age requirement now, not sure so dont quote me, I think where I work they wont hire under 18.

Unfortunately you are not going to make great money to start. The real $$ is in dental hygeine. I know someone that left pharmacy to do that, she only works 3 days a week and makes GREAT $$$$ I believe its only 2 yrs of school, very worth it from what I hear. If you are going to go to school, do that not pharmacy tech.

It all depends on if you just want to work in a store or if you want to go into a hospital or some other place. Stores may train and that part would be true but a hospital which would pay more would want someone trainned and it is alot more than what they do in a store. First it would be wise to check out the market and see what jobs are out there.

I was a pharm tech in high school and college for a chain that was bought out by CVS. No training other then on the job. Went from stock boy to filling out scripts overnight ------ Skeery isn't it. laugh.gif

thanks guys. I am going to look into the websites, and, call around to see if hiring. I have no experience in it but I am smart and easily trainable.
It just seems like an interesting job.


what schools around here offer dental hygienist or even dental assistant training?

My daughter is a Pharmacy Tech and she was hired without any experience. She is mature for her age and very responsible. She started when she was 16 and then the age rule got changed to 18 after that. But because she was grandfathered in, she got to stay on. She does this part-time when she is home from school. It's a great job for her to fall back on, because of the demand.

Anyway, try the Kroger stores for a start.

Good luck!

It seems like I just saw this on Chattahoochee Tech's site when I was looking for something else.

Basic dental assisting and advanced dental assisting are available at West Georgia Technical College in Douglasville. One semester each = 1 year long program 2-1/2 hours day, M-F. HOPE grant pays for tuition if you can get in.

It's a dual enrollment program for the Douglas County high schools. They get top priority, then remaining spots are open to "traditional" non-high school students.

West Georgia Technical College

Dental Hygeine is also available but it's an Associate's Degree and not covered by the HOPE Grant.

Hope this helps!


if you know please post..thanks

also, if you know where to go to train for dental assistant or hygenist let me know. thanks.
