Stenberg College is designated by the BC government’s Ministry of Advanced Education through the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB). PTIB is responsible for setting standards of quality and ensuring consumer protection. Stenberg College has also received the BC government’s Education Quality Assurance (EQA) designation, which is BC’s brand or “seal” of quality post-secondary education for public and private institutions. This program is also approved by the Registrar.
Our combined-delivery Pharmacy Technician program has been accredited by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP) in 2018 for a four-year term (our in-class Pharmacy Technician program is currently under review). Only graduates from programs accredited by CCAPP are eligible for direct admission into the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada certification process, the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia registration process and the Jurisprudence Examination. Becoming a regulated pharmacy technician allows you to operate at an expanded scope of practice and increases your earning potential.
