Pharmacy Technicians University (PTU)

Today, pharmacy technicians are increasingly important members of the pharmacy team. Skilled pharmacy technicians are critical for the economic and efficient function of a pharmacy. However, training requirements for pharmacy technicians change often and are becoming more complex, creating a shortage of qualified pharmacy technicians. Pharmacy Technicians University (PTU) offers:

  • Programs ranging from 93 to 605 hours of didactic, simulation, and experiential learning
  • The highest quality technician training resources in a variety of learning modalities
  • The first online tech training program that supports or exceeds the requirements for technician training in 50 states, including Washington, D.C.

How to Sign Up for PTU

PTU can be purchased as an enterprise subscription from TRC Healthcare. PTU enterprise solutions are available in flexible packages for Provider and Community Pharmacy technician training programs and offer PTU 101 programs with didactic-only training for community and hospital settings.

Also now available are new add-on offerings from the PTU Elite suite of programs, aimed at supporting pharmacy technicians along their career path. These programs can be purchased outside of a PTU subscription as stand-alone options, and currently include PTU Elite: CSPT™ Training, PTU Elite: Soft Skills, PTU Elite: Hazardous Drugs, PTU Elite: Point-of-Care Testing, PTU Elite: Math Mastery, and PTU Elite: Controlled Substances & Diversion.

If you would like to subscribe as an individual with a single-user license, you can do so through the following state/member pharmacy associations:

If you don’t belong to one of the above, you can also purchase individual access to PTU  through TRC’s partner, RxToolKit RxAcademy.

Please note that some states have specific requirements around technician training/education, for which an individual license to Pharmacy Technicians University may not be suitable. Please check with your state’s Board of Pharmacy for details.
