LSC-Tomball to Hold Pharmacy Technology Application Day

TOMBALL, Texas – According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of people requiring medication nationwide has spiked over the past decade, resulting in a 32 percent increase in the employment of pharmacy technicians beyond 2020, and thanks to LSC-Tomball’s upcoming Pharmacy Technology Program Application Day, students will now be able to register and join this growing field.

“They’ll have the opportunity to meet with advisors, interview, and tour pharmacy technology program labs and get accepted into the program all in one day,” said LSC-Tomball Pharmacy Technology Program Director Angela Bayer.

Pharmacy Technology Program Applicant Day is 9 am - 2 pm, December 6, in the lobby of the LSC-Tomball Health Science Building located at 700 Graham Drive, Tomball, TX 77375.

The LSC-Tomball pharmacy technology program is accredited by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) and boasts a 100 percent pass rate on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) examination. Additionally, students earn an ASHP and ACPE approved sterile compounding certification as part of their training.

A maximum of 24 applications are accepted to the program each year; therefore, students interested in applying are encouraged to print out and complete the application form found at, meet with an advisor, and submit the form as soon as possible, by mail or in person.  Qualified applicants will be contacted to schedule a program admission interview.

The certificate program can be completed in nine months via the Fast Track program or the traditional program, which takes 12 months to complete. The program features mandatory program orientation prior to the beginning of classes, hands-on preparation (skills, techniques and procedures are learned in three highly interactive laboratories), two hybrid courses and multiple laboratory options to allow schedule flexibility, and on-the-job training (a total of 320 externship hours which includes practice in both retail and hospital pharmacy clinical sites).

Those who complete the 31 credit hour Pharmacy Technology certificate program are then eligible to pursue an associate of applied science degree. The LSC-Tomball AAS in Pharmacy Management degree is transferable to many 4-year universities that offer the Bachelors of Applied Arts and Sciences. Applicants who can provide evidence of specific experience working in a pharmacy, certification through the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB), and/or registration as a certified pharmacy technician through the Texas State Board of Pharmacy may be exempt from some of certificate program courses.
