  1. Pharmacy Technician


    A very good course to do. Unfortunately all exams I did never let me finish and i couldn’t select my answer. I had 4 questions to do in my last exam and it finished me to say ide passed. My results showing that ide not give any answers for the last questions. This now reflects on my score. Ide like to take the exam again.

    I really loved this course. It wasn’t love at first sight, of course, and the first date didn’t catch me at all. But as I progressed, I became more and more interested, until I finally loved it. It is a course that I recommend for people of all ages, as we are constantly learning throughout life.But I recommend it to pharmacy-technician. but it’s never too late 🙂 I learned a lot, Thank you!
