In the state of Florida you may be trained on the job as a pahrmacy techician when working on the retail level. However, I recommend formal training at the community college level. I also, recommend that you become certified. In the state of Flroida now there is a bill before the senate that if passed will require all pahramcy techicians to become registered with the state of Flroida. To start those with 1500 work hours will be grandfathered from formal training but the year 2011 you must have formal training, and pass boards before you will be allowed to training. Good Luck I hope that is helps. I am a certified pharmacy techician and I manager a pharmacy for a community mental health center and it is a great career.

Becoming a pharmacy technician takes a lot of hard work and some schooling to make you qualified. Due to the educational requirement, it only makes sense that a pharmacy technician salary should be high enough to compensate someone for all the hard work it takes to become a pharmacy technician. If you want to learn about the pharmacy technician salary options in your local area, the best place to look is your local department of labor statistics.
