North Georgia Technical College is an approved PTCB-Recognized Education/Training Program. Being recognized by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board allows students to meet the education/training requirement to apply for their PTCB CPhT credential.
North Georgia Technical College does not require vaccination for program admission; however, each clinical/practicum site reserves the right to deny a student entry based on their own policies and procedures. Clinical/practicum sites mandate vaccinations against specific diseases such as COVID-19, influenza and/or testing for specific diseases such as tuberculosis. Students are required to follow the medical clearance policies designated by their assigned clinical and/or practicum sites. If a student is denied entry to a required clinical/practicum site based on a lack of vaccinations or testing, the student will not be able to complete the clinical/practicum course. As a result, successful completion of the program will not be possible.
