Pharmacy Technician Training at Unitek College

Why Unitek

Pharmacy Technician National Certification Passing Assistance!

Unitek College assists students with the passing of the PTCB (National) certification so they can become Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhTs). In fact, we are so confident that our students will pass the PTCB exam to become CPhTs, that we pay the exam fee for them. Should one of our students not pass the PTCB national exam the first time after satisfactory completion of our training program, Unitek College will pay for their second attempt! Who says that there are no second chances in life? Please refer to our enrollment package for complete details.
