Pharmacy Tech: Cool career, great pay in 16 weeks

When you are fresh out of high school, it sometimes takes a while to decide "what you want to be when you grow up." Even after I graduated with a bachelor's degree at 23, I wasn't sure. But, I have a new concept. Instead of trying to decide what you want to be someday, how about deciding what you want to be right now? That is, what if you could train one semester and be ready for a career that has the potential to pay between $25,000 and $42,000 per year?

Students can qualify to take the exam to be a nationally certified pharmacy technician after only 16 weeks of training at TCC. And, 99 percent of students who train at TCC pass this exam. Graduates of the program can work at pharmacies and/or hospitals and make a good living. They can also work while furthering their education in pharmacy, nursing or another career. No matter what they decide to do, becoming a nationally certified pharmacy technician will only enhance their resumes. 

And, if you are Native American and a member of a tribe, you have even more options and earning potential.
