To take into account

Anyone with a dream and desire to succeed in becoming a pharmacy assistant

The ICI Pharmacy Assistant course is NOT designed to meet the requirements of the General Pharmaceutical Council to practice as a Pharmacy Technician or Pharmacy Dispenser. The course is however designed for those who are aspiring towards working in a retail pharmacy as a foundation course and to those already working a pharmacy technician or dispenser for the purposes of professional development and further training.

This course is recognised and accredited by the International Association of Private Career Colleges (IAPCC). The courses offered by ICI are unique as they take a very “hands on” approach. Our courses are not designed to teach you just the “theory” behind the industry – they are written and tutored by industry professionals and will fast-track you into a new career of your choice.
