In only its second year, 11 Carter County CTE students participated in the Pharmacy Technician class and achieved a 100% pass rate on the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam.

With only an average pass rate of 70% of test takers on the PTCB exam, this is an extraordinary accomplishment for the students.

This one semester course prepared them for the Pharmacy Tech Certification Exam and upon passing, enter the workforce as Certified Pharmacy Technicians.
