Pharmacy Technician (Distance Education)

CTS College’s innovative Pharmacy Technician Program is designed to limit the amount of time you have to spend away from home by combining distance learning with intensive on-campus skills camps and a work placement. You can get your diploma and prepare yourself for a new career with the least disturbance to your home, work and family commitments!

The online component of our program can be done from the comfort of your own home and features web-conferencing, instructor-led lectures and activities that promote interaction and collaboration with your classmates. You’ll finish each semester with an in-class skills camp at a CTS College campus, where you'll put your skills into practice in a simulated lab environment with workstations. Finally, you’ll participate in a work practicum in a real pharmacy setting, which gives you real hands-on experience that you can put right on your resume!

Our program was developed under counsel of the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP). When you successfully graduate, you’ll be eligible to become a regulated pharmacy technician in Canada, including sitting the Structured Practical Training (SPTs), Ontario College of Pharmacists (OCP) Jurisprudence and Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) qualifying exams.

All courses are taught by instructors with industry experience and cover all of the crucial topics and courses required to explore career opportunities in the pharmacy industry.
