As you get started, there are a couple of things we recommend. First, complete the modules in the order they are presented. This program is comprehensive, and each module builds upon the previous one. If you skip around, you can easily miss information necessary to successfully completing each module. Take your time and learn the information thoroughly.
Second, watch for ways you can apply your new profession in your daily life. Pay attention to pharmaceutical commercials on TV and commit the names of those drugs and what they are used for to memory. Find out more about any medications you are currently taking or have taken in the past. Talk to close acquaintances who might willing to share their medication regimen with you and learn about those drugs as well. Personalizing the information will help you retain it better.
The Career Step Pharmacy Technician program provides everything you need to succeed in this new career, and your new Career Step family is committed to helping you succeed. Again, welcome to this exciting adventure, and we look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
