pharmacy technician state requirements

Attention, Fellow Techies: If you see a mistake on the map above or a link does not work, please let us know. We work hard to keep the pharmacy technician state requirements up to date.

Although our aim is for you to be able to skip expensive classes so you can pass the PTCE on your own, some states require you attend and graduate from a state board-approved program. If your state requires this, then check out American Society of Health-System Pharmacists‘ website. They have a directory that will allow you to search programs by location. The PTCB plans to have every state have this requirement by the year 2020 so Pharmacy Tech Review would like to help as many technicians as we can pass the PTCE before this requirement goes into effect.
