A number of online career schools and universities offer pharmacy technician courses -- either alone or through diploma programs and degree programs -- through which online students can enrol in individual courses that are either streamed live or archived.

Penn Foster Career School

Penn Foster offers a pharmacy technician career diploma program through which students can take asynchronous (archived) pharmacy course units.

Kaplan University

Kaplan University offers a pharmacy technician certificate program through which online students can take both synchronous (live) and asynchronous pharmacy technician courses in conjunction with matching course discussion forums.

University of Phoenix

University of Phoenix offers a variety of associate's, bachelor's and master's degrees in health-care-related fields. Within these programs, students can enrol in online courses covering pharmacy basics, such as "Pharmacy Calculations: Just for Good Measure." The school is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.


Online pharmacy technician courses provide a level of scheduling flexibility not available with on-campus classes. This allows students to study online and work simultaneously.


Pharmacy technician courses prepare students to become a pharmacy assistant capable of filling out prescriptions, managing operations and processing health insurance paperwork.


Students should avoid attending pharmacy technician courses at schools that do not have regional or national accreditation in the United States. Courses from such schools are often not valued by employers.
