Pharmacy Technician Application Process

Requirements to become a Pharmacy Technician are:

  • High School Diploma or GED
  • No felonies in the last 5 years
  • No drug charges

To apply for the program, you will need to set up a meeting with Dr. Boone by emailing rboone@alvincollege.edu or call: 281-756-3805.

The program consists of online courses and hybrid courses.  Lectures are online and labels are in the classroom in the evening. The last semester requires a Clinical Internship of 256 hours (which equates to 16-20 hours per week). Retail internship hours are required. You may complete all hours in Retail or 128 hours in a local hospital.

You have to be registered with the Texas State Board of Pharmacy as a Pharmacy Technician in Training (they will perform a background check on you at this time). Requirements for hospital internships include negative drug test, CPR for Health Care Professionals, and updated vaccinations including a flu vaccine during flu season and a negative TB test.
