In 2003 the legislature enacted a law requiring the Board of Pharmacy to register all Pharmacy Technicians. If you are working as a Pharmacy Technician, you must to be registered with the Board Office. To request a Technician Application Packet, you will need to contact the Board Office at the number below or via email. The registration fee is $70.00. Only one registration is required even if you work for multiple pharmacies or change jobs. You will keep the same registration number forever. If you have your registration card and you begin working for another pharmacy, simply give them your registration number, so they do not have you fill out another application or take the test again. If you let your existing registration expire and you are past the 30 day grace period for your renewal date, you will be required to complete a new application.
Every two years you must renew your registration with Board Office. If your registration number ends in an even number, you will renew on even years. If your registration ends in an odd number, you will renew on odd years. The renewal fee is $20.00 and you do not need to take a test to renew. The renewal form is not on the Board website. You will receive a renewal form in the mail at your home address on file, so it is important that you notify the Board Office when you move, with your new address. The Board will only send out renewal forms to those persons who are up for renewal. If you believe that you are due to renew and you do not receive a renewal form in the mail, you may contact the Board Office at the number below or via e-mail. Before contacting the Board Office, please check to ensure that your license registration is odd or even (you will not automatically receive a renewal form if it is not your year to renew). The renewal form is not the same as the original application, so do not fill out an application if you are renewing your registration. If you let your existing registration expire and you are past the 30 day grace period for your renewal date, you will be required to complete a new application.
