To Whom it may concern,
I am a certified pharmacy technician and was wondering if I could get more information on the army specialist program. I am 21 years old and have recently graduated from a pharmacy technician program, thank you for your time.

its a 19 week program, probably very similar to your civilian training, but with more duties and responsibility. after school the setting is very much the same as a civilian pharmacy, only you are in your army uniform on a base. not much of a difference. just be pretty decent at math, and id study up on your IV calculations. you should do very well, also, it is required to learn each drug and its generic and trade name, purpose, and the extra info you need to put on the bottle ( take with food, Ect.)
Hi, I am currently in the DEP as a 68W. And I was wondering if it is too late to re-class my job? I have 4 months until basic and I recently realized I have an aversion to blood after I signed my contract. I am willing to do anything to get out of this job and STAY in the Army. Please help with advice.
