Pharmacy Tech B includes Pharmacy mathematics and chemistry with wet lab, externship, and will conclude with registering for the PTCB Certification Exam.

Pharmacy Tech A will meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:15pm-8:15pm for 10 weeks beginning Monday, February 1st and ending Wednesday, April 5th.  The cost is $225.

Pharmacy Tech B will meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:15pm-8:15pm for 10 weeks beginning Monday, April 17th and ending Wednesday, June 21st.  The cost is $225.

The course fee includes the course curriculum delivered through Edgenuity online educational software and access to a Connecticut certified teacher, but does not include the $129 PTCB exam fee.  Please check the PTCB website ( for more exam information. Students should bring a calculator to class.  Please note that this is a rigorous program that will require a minimum of 8-10 hours of homework per week and at most two absences for successful completion.
