Gatlin Education Services announced today it has reached an agreement with Walgreens that will give students an important leg up in the job market. Walgreens will offer its externship program to students in several Walgreens districts who are taking Gatlin’s pharmacy technician online career training program provided basic qualifications are met.

Gatlin’s nationally recognized pharmacy technician program is available at hundreds of continuing education departments at community colleges and universities across the United States.

The course aims to provide high school graduates and individuals seeking new careers the skills and knowledge that will enable them to qualify for entry-level positions in pharmacies as well as prepare for the mandated national certification.

Walgreens supplies interns with 80 to 160 hours of hands-on experience that includes assisting pharmacists with prescriptions, answering patient questions about medications and a bevy of administrative duties.

Gatlin and Walgreens initially expect to enroll about a dozen students in the internship program every month, with that number doubling in a year’s time. More than 8,600 individuals have expressed an interested in Gatlin’s pharmacy technician course this year.

“The pharmacy technician program is one of our most popular offerings,” said Stephen Gatlin, founder of Fort Worth-based Gatlin Education Services. “The added benefit of having a valuable internship will continue to put Gatlin students a step ahead in an ultra-competitive job market. The partnership with Walgreens will not only open doors for students, but will also pave the way for similar advantages with our other programs.”
