In order to get into the Pharmacy Technician I program, students must provide transcripts that show the level of their math and reading skills, or they must take Tests of Adult Basic Education. These free pre-pharmacy classes will help people pass those assessment tests and get accepted into the Pharmacy Technician I program.

“Even if you have the scores to get into the program, we encourage all interested people to take advantage of these free classes so they are better prepared for the math and reading that the Pharmacy Tech program requires,” said Dr. Matt Zullo, program coordinator.

Those not scoring high enough for entry into the Pharmacy Technician I program can retake the pre-pharmacy technician classes at no charge. To register for classes or schedule TABE testing, call Student Services at (910) 410-1700.
