Went from Retail Clerk to Pharmacy Technician.
I had nothing but great experiences with MedCerts! They were always very quick to answer any of my questions and gave me all the information I needed! I also loved that they do study sessions with you prior to taking your certification exam to make sure you know your stuff and you are ready!
