Here are the 3 steps you will take to become a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT.)

My name is Monica Beard and I took a course at Rx Health Academy last summer. It was very convenient for me taking the courses online because I was a student and also employed. The courses were easy to follow along and engaging. I was able to find a job at Walgreens just a couple weeks after receiving my license. Carlton and Rx Health Academy helped me tremendously and I'm thankful for it!

Carlton Reed, CPhT.

I've been a Certified Pharmacy Technician since 2014, beginning my career at CVS Pharmacy. You probably know me from my weekly Youtube show where I give advice to aspiring Pharmacy Technicians.

But I didn't stop there! Throughout the course of youtubing and teaching I've also published a PTCE prep book, which has helped students across the United States become nationally certified. Over the past few years, I've applied a lot of what I've learned to help students like you pass the PTCE and get certified on their first try!

I created Rx Health Academy, to help aspiring Pharmacy Technicians learn from my successes—and failures—getting my own career off the ground. Rx Health Academy gives you everything you need to start your career successfully, including an externship with CVS, study guides, and video lessons.

Many Certified Pharmacy Technicians got their start with Rx Health Academy. See what they are achieving.

Choosing Rx Health Academy is one of the best decisions that I have ever made for my future and my wallet. The Pharmacy Technician program is giving me the tools and knowledge to have a new in demand well respected career at a affordable price.
