Becoming a pharmacy tech does not specifically require "years." A pharmacy technician must simply be qualified (by either experience or on-the-job-training) and have a high-school diploma. Certain states have different requirements as far as certification (just an exam) or registration with their state's board of pharmacy (pay the fee). For instance, Texas requires all pharmacy technicians be certfied by the PTCB (Pharmacy Technician Certification Board) and register with the Texas State Board of Pharmacy. For more info, visit http://tsbp.state.tx.us or google search your state + "board of pharmacy" for the requirements. Have a great day. James Freeman, CPhT Victoria, TX cpht@jfcomputing.net

A pharmacy tech still has to go through 6 years of school, just like anyone else to become a pharmacist. The advantage is that a tech is very familiar with everything and school will be easier than a regular student. I am a pharmacy tech for Publix and also an undergraduate student going for pharmacy. So it is 2 years of undergrad, and 4 more for pharmacy program.

In Nebraska, none. The pharmacy will give you on the job training and usually pay for your books and test that you take at home.

I think you meant pharmacist, not a pharmacy tech. A Pharmacist needs to study pharmacology that is linked to chemistry at certain point. A pharmacy tech doesn't need to attend college, but a technical course only, and his work is subordinated to the pharmacist.
