    Pharmacy Tech Diploma Training in Dallas

    Our Pharmacy Tech school in Dallas has five classrooms and labs dedicated to student instruction.

    Our students work with more than 30 different compounding agents in their hands-on labs. And more than 200 placebo prescriptions and dispensing bottles are available for students to train with.

    Students work with the tools of their trade and use industry-grade equipment like laminar airflow hoods, syringes, needles, IV bags and tubing, weighing scales, hotplate stirrers, beakers and graduated cylinders, capsule and tablet makers and molds, ointment tubes, and a variety of packaging items.

    And from Day One, they begin training in our mock pharmacy lab, which includes a simulated retail, IV, and compounding section.

    Our Dallas Pharmacy Tech program works to maintain a teaching ratio of 10 students to one instructor in our mock pharmacy to ensure that students are getting enough attention, support, and one-on-one time in their hands-on labs.

    Community Connections for Dallas Pharmacy Tech Students

    Dallas-area pharmacists and hiring managers talk regularly with our faculty and staff. This allows us to keep up-to-date with the latest requirements of the field and may even offer more externship (on-the-job training) and employment opportunities to our graduates.(1,2)

    To help our students get several perspectives on what a job in pharmacology may be like, our Dallas Pharmacy Technician training program has taken class field trips to places like the Baylor University Medical Center. Our program has also hosted a variety of in-field professionals as on-Campus guest speakers.

    • Blood drives for Carter Blood Care
    • Food drives for the North Texas Food Bank
    • University of Texas Southwestern BioBank events

    And over the years, several of our graduates have gained entry-level pharmacy tech jobs at places like these:(1)
