Pharmacy Technician Course Discount
s we all know, starting in 2020 in order to be able to take the pharmacy technician exam (PTCE), applicants must complete a verified course or complete 500 hours as a pharmacy clerk. Unfortunately, most of the courses are very expensive but one of the cheapest options is available here: RxTechExam. There are two options, one priced at $169.99 and another at $199.99. We have partnered with this group to offer you $50 off of the Platinum Course ONLY with this code: uclarx. Access to the materials is allowed for 90 days, although you can purchase extensions. Both of these courses will qualify you to take the PTCE with certification valid in most states. This course is more convenient as you are not required to work any hours before taking the exam and becoming certified.
