License Renewal

Pharmacy Technician Renewal instructions:

  • Go to and click “Online Renewal."
  • If you are a new user or do not know your username, under Existing Licensee Registration, click “Sign-Up.” Select Classification "Technician." Enter the license number you are renewing, the last four digits of your Social Security number and your date of birth. Create a username and password. Passwords must contain 6-15 characters with at least 1 letter, 1 number and 1 symbol.
  • Login to your account and select “Renew License.”
  • Review and update information, answer disciplinary questions since your last renewal, and submit the renewal. If you were initially registered after July 1, 2017, you must upload your PTCB or ExCPT proof of certification before submitting your renewal.
  • ALL Technicians are required to complete 20 hours of ACPE/Board approved continuing education for each biennial renewal period. The hours must be completed within the licensed period, NOVEMBER 1, 2021 - OCTOBER 31, 2023.
  • Use our secure online payment portal to pay $20 (plus a transaction fee) by credit/debit card or electronic check, OR follow the instructions to print and mail a $20 check or money order to the Board.
  • Allow ten business days for review. Once approved you may log back into the portal to print your renewal certificate.
  • Visit our website License Verification page to check for an updated expiration date.
  • If you need to reset your password, enter your license number under "Forgot Password." An email will be sent to the email on file.
  • Failing to renew on or before 11:59pm CST October 31, 2023 will result in the cancellation of your registration. You will then be required to complete a new application and fingerprint card. The cost for both is $67.00. You CANNOT work without a current registration.

  • Advantages of renewing online:

    Fast—it only takes a few minutes and you will receive a confirmation when you finish, so you will know your renewal is complete. In most instances, your new license is mailed to you the next business day after you renew - sometimes even the same day. Your renewed license information will be available on our License Verification Database the day after you renew.

    Convenient—you can complete your renewal 24 hours a day, seven days a week at any location with Internet access.

    Accurate – you must enter all of your information as the on-line renewal will not allow you to leave required information blank; therefore, your renewal form will not be returned because you left something blank or forgot to sign it.

    No lost payments—you use a credit card or electronic check to renew.

    No postage required—your renewal notice will not be returned to you because you forgot to include postage.

    Will not get lost in the mail—the confirmation you receive will allow your renewal application to be traced internally should any issues arise. 

    There are two exceptions to the online license renewal process at this time: 

    • Initiating or renewing an inactive license status.  You will need to obtain a printed renewal form.
    • We have opened up online renewals, even if you have had new discipline during the last renewal period; however, you will need to submit a paper copy of the discipline to the board office.  You can proceed with an online renewal, but the license will be pending until the discipline review is completed.

    Employers are encouraged to have a computer with Internet access available, for their employees to use at the work site, for the purpose of license renewal. This will accommodate early license renewal by employees and result in fewer last minute renewal problems. Remember that renewals postmarked after your license expiration will be considered lapsed. Any licensee or registrant practicing on a lapsed license can and will be fined. Don’t delay, renew as soon as you receive the notice (and the renewal period opens) to avoid penalties and delays in receiving your renewed license.

    The Board of Pharmacy urges you to take advantage of the online renewal process. However, if you are unable to renew online please contact our office at [email protected] to request a printed renewal form.
