The new requirements that began Jan 1, 2011 call for registering with the state. To register you must complete a Pharmacy Tech course. So far all I have found are in the $13K to $15K the is thousand dollar range for the courses. It seems an awful amount of money for a job that doesn't pay much more than McDonald's to start with. Even after experience $17 seems to be the maximun I have seen.
I would love to know about any other schools with a better price. I can't afford to go at this point.
