  • Casper College offers the only accredited program in Wyoming that is available online and on campus.
  • Complete the program in as little as three months.

The pharmacy technology program strives to balance technical training and classroom instruction to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the needs and goals established by the pharmacy profession.

The certificate program is prepares students for entry-level employment as pharmacy technicians.

The associate degree program is for students who wish to pursue an academic program comprised of general education courses as well as pharmacy technician basics. The associate degree also offers options to students who plan to use the degree as the foundation for further education.
