Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education, announced today that its online pharmacy technician training program has been granted approval by the Minnesota State Board of Pharmacy.
The training program is now being distributed through Career Step’s regional partners, Normandale Community College, St. Cloud State University and Winona State University.
“Our goal is always to provide the very best training for our students,” Career Step Vice-President of Academics Jerolyn Robertson said. “In the case of Minnesota, we have worked very hard to ensure our curriculum meets and exceeds the requirements set forth for individuals pursuing a pharmacy technician career in the state. As students take our training program through our academic partners, they will receive all of the training and skills they need to ensure their preparation to move into the workforce as pharmacy technicians in Minnesota.”
The Career Step Pharmacy Technician training program offers 310 hours of online curriculum that prepares students for the field and is one of the few online programs approved by the Minnesota State Board of Pharmacy.
“Academic partnerships provide us the opportunity to share our career-focused curriculum through institutions that are trusted within individual communities,” Vice President of Academic Partnerships Ryan Ewer said. “Within Minnesota, we’re particularly excited about these partnerships because, with the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy’s approval, these schools can now offer students a streamlined way to prepare for careers as pharmacy technicians.”
Students interested in Career Step’s Pharmacy Technician program can enroll through one of Career Step’s academic partners.
