Pharmacy Technicians or “pharm-techs” play a vital role in both local pharmacy operations and the healthcare industry. OTC’s Center for Workforce Development offers two different options to obtain certification status.

  1. Accelerated Pharmacy Technician: If you are already working in a pharmacy and meet course requirements, you may take one of our 10-day  courses. Each course focuses on a particular industry environment, either hospital or retail.
  2. Certified Pharmacy Technician: If you are new to the field or wanting to get started as a pharmacy technician, give this course a look.

Currently offered course descriptions and registration information are available from the links below. If you do not see the course you are looking for, please check again next semester.

EMPLOYERS: Custom scheduling options may be available. Call 417-447-8888 and ask to speak with an Allied Health representative.
