Become a pharmacy technician … we'll help pay for your education!

Really … at no cost? Here's how we can help you!

  • Qualified sponsorship applicants can receive a tuition credit for the program for 50 percent of the approved program's cost.

  • The online pharmacy technician-training program qualifies for our 50 percent tuition reduction benefit (available to current full-time employees with six months tenure).​

That means full-time employees can take advantage of the 50 percent tuition reduction and receive a 50 percent credit toward tuition of this program, making the program free to current, full-time employees. Wow! Part-time employees are eligible for the 50 percent credit toward the program. While not eligible for the 50 percent tuition reduction benefit, the sponsorship credit reduces the program cost by half.
