They have stuck with me the whole way

“My entire experience with Medcerts has been amazing! I participated in a Pharmacy program and they have stuck with me the whole way. Even when I didn’t make my deadlines they still worked with me. Having genuine people who care and true support is amazing. Within 6 months I took the PTCB Exam and passed on the first try! When I say I couldn’t have done it without my team/ MedCerts. I am now officially a certified pharmacy technician within 6 months!!!! I would recommend this program to anyone. Thank you so much MedCerts!!!!! Certified babyyyyyy!!!!!”
