Courses > Technician courses
The core programmes for pharmacy technicians are divided into two main areas: live and distance learning. You can view details of all courses by clicking on the links on the right hand side of this page. You may also apply for workshops and paper-based distance learning courses via these links, view online courses, in addition to entering and submitting your MCQ answers and course evaluations.
The live programme comprises workshops and a regional programme. While the latter is open access, you must apply for workshops via this website. You will find the course summary under the workshop link. This has a place counter, which shows you the number of places remaining. Even if the number of places available is zero, you can still apply for the workshop and be placed on the waiting list.
Under each live course listing you may view and print a map showing the location of the course venue.
The distance learning programme comprises print-based courses and eLearning. eLearning courses may be accessed directly from the website, but you must login to view them.
NICPLD provides a number of specialised training programmes for pharmacy technicians and you must apply for these separately. The links on the right-hand navigation provide further information on these courses and the forms you will need to enroll on them.
