How do I advance now?

by Joey

I have been a pharmacy tech since 2013 and have worked retail and LTC. I recently became certified. It seems as though now there's no more advancement opportunity for me in the retail chain where I am currently working. We are no longer a compounding pharmacy either. What can I do or where can I go to "move up"? I've learned just about everything here and would love the opportunity for to expand my knowledge further.

Expanding knowledge
by: Anonymous

I am thinking of adding some certifications to my CPhT. If you check the PTCB websites it shows classes and/or workshops you can participate in to get specialized trainings. Always looking to expand my knowledge. Still thinking about teaching as well but not too many opportunities in this area.

After doing some exploring and nearing my Senior CPhT status I think I might try teaching. I've always loved the idea of teaching but other than training employees or tutoring as a volunteer I haven't really had an opportunity to actually teach a class or group. We'll see how it goes and I will follow up later.
