Testimonial Picture Box

Before I started this program, I had zero experience in the pharmacy field. All my knowledge and skills about pharmacy practice, medication, and techniques were learned in the classroom setting. The program has a good balance between theory and practical courses, which provided me with essential skills and experiences to work in a real pharmacy. I started my first pharmacy job after my third semester at Centennial College. My manager was surprised at how fast I was able to pick up the workflow, as my only previous pharmacy experience was from the two placements that amounted 56 hours in total. Aside from the program structure, the instructors are all very passionate about the materials they are teaching and they really care about the success of their students. Overall, I believe the Pharmacy Technician Program at Centennial College is a well-rounded and comprehensive program that really helped me to prepare for the workforce and becoming a registered Pharmacy Technician.
