  • Pharmacy Technician Training in Houston, Texas


    Since our Pharmacy Technician training program began in September 2003, our Houston college instructors used creative learning exercises and hands-on projects to provide students with relevant, career-focused training in the Houston area.(1)  Remington College currently has two locations in Houston offering the Pharmacy Technician program: Greenspoint and Webster.

    We’ve been preparing students to prepare to become Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhTs)!

    Our Houston Pharmacy Tech School

    As a student in our pharmacy technician school program, your instruction includes teaching you how to read simulated prescriptions and then giving those scripts to other Health Sciences students, who act as "patients" as they drop off and pick up their "prescriptions" from you!

    Our retail mock pharmacy area simulates an actual pharmacy setting and includes four stations:

    • Drop-off and pick-up
    • Transcribing and calculation
    • Data entry
    • Filling and packaging

    During the second half of the Houston Pharmacy Tech training program, you'll be part of a rotating schedule that moves you and your classmates from one station to the next, until each of you have completed the duties of each station.

    Our hospital mock pharmacy area simulates an in-patient setting and consists of three stations:

    • Transcribing and calculation
    • Data entry
    • Filling and packaging with a delivery cart

    In this hospital-like setting, you'll practice how to complete mock prescriptions according to the station schedule and deliver them to other participating classrooms using a delivery cart.

    If you're like most of our Pharmacy Technician college students, you'll especially enjoy the Extemporaneous Compounding classes and the mock pharmacy project because of the hands-on activities and the real-world practice you can receive.

    Extracurricular Activities for Houston Pharmacy Tech Students

    Area events that you can participate in as a Pharmacy Tech student include annual job fairs and blood drives, Toys for Tots collection efforts, food drives for the Houston Food Bank, and the chance to volunteer at several area hospitals.

    Externship sites also work specifically with our Pharmacy Technician program to provide on-the-job training opportunities for you during the last module of our diploma program.(2)

    The Houston Pharmacy Technician diploma program has programmatic accreditation from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) http://www.ashp.org/. The ASHP is a nationally recognized non-profit pharmacy association that has been accrediting pharmacy technician training programs since 1983.
