Rx Tech Prep School - Your Prescription For Career Success!
There is a common misconception about what is required, from an educational perspective, to become a Certified Pharmacy Technician in our country (and in the State of Illinois). There are a number of schools in the Rockford (and surrounding) area offering Pharmacy Tech classes that will have you believe that a two year degree is a requirement to becoming a Pharmacy Tech, or that your education should cost tens of thousands of dollars. Please allow us to dispel that myth!
Did you know that all other Pharmacy Technician programs of education offered in the Rockford and surrounding areas cost tens thousands of dollars? Are you aware that these 'alternatives' take up to two years to complete? Most, if not all, of these other courses are not even taught by Registered Pharmacists! Why would you want to spend tens of thousands of dollars, wait for two years, and not be educated by the highest qualified instructor - just to get the same job that a graduate of Rx Tech Prep is elegible for? Why would you want to do all that when IT IS NOT NECESSARY IN ORDER TO BECOME A CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN?
If you take a moment to review some actual testimonials from graduates of the Rx Tech Prep School (in the videos below), not only will you find out that Rx Tech Prep the ONLY affordable Pharmacy Tech course offered in the entire Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin area, you will also hear about students that have, after completing Rx Tech Prep's 11 week course, already found jobs as Pharmacy Technicians! One of our graduates got a job at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, before he even completed Rx Tech Prep's 11 week Pharmacy Tech course!

A nationwide shortage of pharmacists and a growith of prescription medications have allowed Pharmacy Technicians the opportunity to play a continually more important role in today's pharmacy industry. With this growing opportunity, however, has also come increased responsibility, and this increased responsibility has made Pharmacy Technician Certification an important issue to many industry employers and even to numerous state boards of pharmacy. Many states now require state registration and certification.
Pharmacy Technician Certification is obtained by sitting for and passing a comprehensive exam. Many employers provide increased compensation to pharmacy technicians once they become certified, and certified Pharmacy Technicians as a whole regularly receive higher pay than their non-certified counterparts. Currently, over 100,000 Pharmacy Technicians have sat for and passed a certification exam.

Pharmacy Technicians assist licensed pharmacists in dispensing medication and other healthcare products to patients and perform almost every function in the pharmacy. A Pharmacy Technician takes care of many of the day-to-day operations of a pharmacy, leaving a pharmacist free for more critical operations.
Technicians usually perform routine tasks, such as: help prepare prescribed medication for patients, count tablets, answer telephones, receive written prescriptions, verify written prescriptions, take refill requests and much more.
