Hi Mustang Gal,

There are a lot of "short term" schools offering training for those jobs, as well as Pharmacy Tech. (Have you considered that?) Normally, those schools offer placement assistance as well.

I don't know what state you are in, but quite often the state will have a listing of schools like this as well as their accreditation. Be careful - - here in California we had a couple of schools close because of the economy. Students who were in the middle of training lost their money and other schools would not recognize the hours they had already put in.

Have you researched the job market for these skills? Are there jobs available? Don't just listen to what the school says, but check for yourself.

As a mature adult, you may have more appeal to an employer than a 20-year old that graduates with you. You can bring more to the table with your life-long experience with other jobs, clients, customers, etc.

Here are some links that might help you:




Good luck!!
