The Board of Registration in Pharmacy has issued some new, stricter rules for pharmacy technicians in training. As of April 6, such trainees will have to have a valid pharmacy technician trainee license from the board. Those already employed prior to April 6 have until July 1 to complete an application and get it approved by the board.
A pharmacy technician trainee has to be at least 18, have a high school degree or equivalent (or be enrolled in a degree program), be of good moral character, and not have been convicted of (or admitted sufficient facts to) a drug-related felony. Application forms will be on the board’s website.
