As you work toward becoming a pharmacy technician, you will discover that most states have laws and regulations that outline who may be a pharmacy technician and what you need to do to become one. You’ll also discover that these rules can vary widely state to state.
To help you get the information you need, we’ve provided a downloadable document that presents the requirements for all 50 states and how Career Step’s program can help you move toward becoming a technician in your state (your state may require additional requirements to be state licensed). We’ve also provided the web addresses for each state board for your convenience. Remember, this information is a great guide but the responsibility of fulfilling all state expectations rests on you. As you move forward, we recommend visiting your state board website and/or contacting your state board directly (and often!) to fully understand all requirements and learn of any recent changes. It is important to understand that you will not be able to begin work as a pharmacy technician until you have met all requirements of your state.
