While one doesn’t need a formal education to become a pharmacy technician in Texas, it is highly recommended. If one decides to receive higher education, the opportunities opened up to the individual are much higher than if one chose to experience job training. Those with certifications and degrees in pharmacy technician are more likely to become pharmacists and be promoted to managerial positions. Those with a formal pharmacy education take several pharmacy classes, such as medical and pharmaceutical terminology, techniques, record keeping, law, and ethics. Other things to learn are the names of the medications, the side effects, and the doses. These classes help prepare the pharmacy technician to do the job without relying upon any in-house training or job training at the workplace. This allows the student to go into a position, do the job, and be of immediate assistance.

This formal education can often result in good working internships and associate’s degrees or other certifications, depending upon the program, indicating that the student can perform the job in a qualified manner. Once a formal or on-the-job education has been obtained, being certified with the boards is essential to increase one’s job perspective. The Institute for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians and the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board are the two primary certification boards with which most Pharmacy Technicians are asked to become certified. While this certification is not mandatory in Texas, it is recommended and may be required with the job or pharmacy for which one decides to work.
