Pharmacy technicians work closely with pharmacists in hospitals, community and ambulatory clinics, and other practice settings to help prepare and distribute medicines to patients. Pharmacy technicians are crucial members of the healthcare team, and their importance and impact on contemporary practice continues to grow. Efficient and highly skilled pharmacy technicians are essential for patient safety, but finding affordable quality training can be challenging.

ASHP is committed to expanding the role of pharmacy technicians and recognizing their vital role in pharmacy practice. We are proud to offer PharmTech Ready, a comprehensive online technician training resource to address the current technician workforce shortage — a top priority for pharmacy leaders nationwide.

PharmTech Ready is an affordable, scalable, and customizable resource for institutions that directly addresses the most common technician training challenges.

What sets PharmTech Ready apart? PharmTech Ready offers over 160 hours of didactic content for entry-level and advanced pharmacy technician training programs. PharmTech Ready aligns with Pharmacy Technician Accreditation Commission accreditation requirements and the ASHP/ Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education model curriculum.

  • Content: Our content is the gold standard in all pharmacy practice. It’s derived from best practices and is of the highest quality. ASHP is the world's largest provider of pharmacy education and the most trusted source of health-system pharmacy information.
  • Scalable & Customizable: Not all organizations have the same needs. Many health systems develop their own technician training and only need supplemental resources, while some programs require a more comprehensive solution. Because practice needs are varied and complex, we designed PharmTech Ready to be buildable, customizable, and scalable for your unique situation.
  • Technology: PharmTech Ready is hosted exclusively on Dossier's state-of-the-art platform. You can control how the information is organized and formatted to support your program's individual design.


ASHP has built a reputation for unparalleled leadership and trust. We go beyond just education to support your technician's professionalism and career growth. Pharmtech Ready has additional resources and benefits that are exclusive to ASHP and will not only educate and train your technician workforce, but also support technicians as they advance their career through access to professional development resources.
