ACTC offers prep class for pharmacy tech exam

Nov. 20, 2013 — All hospital pharmacy technicians in Kentucky must be nationally certified by March 31, 2014.

There is no ‘grandfather clause’ for current technicians who are not certified. Those working in a hospital setting who are not certified by March 31 will lose their jobs.

Ashland Community and Technical College is offering a class to help Kentucky Pharmacy Technicians prepare for the national certification exam (PTCE) – and beat the deadline for mandatory certification.

The class will be held Dec. 6 to 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the College Drive Campus. The class is open to currently employed pharmacy technicians that have worked in a pharmacy for at least one year. Instructor Nikki Bryant is a certified Pharmacy Technician and former Coordinator of ACTC’s Pharmacy Technology Program The class fee is $199, and students will need to bring a credit card to pay the $129 exam fee. To register, contact Jennifer Criswell, Workforce Solutions/External Education, jennifer.criswell@kctcs.edu or 326-2130.
