Texas

(updated 01/21/2021)

Texas is among the states that have a Pharmacy Technician Trainee Program. We can help you avoid that process and go directly to work as a Registered Pharmacy Technician. The key is to become certified through the PTCB, the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board. The test isn’t easy but a course like RxTechExam’s Platinum package will assure your success.
