  • Question: How does a pharmacy technician register and are they certified through the Board of Pharmacy?

    Answer:

    Any pharmacy technician must be registered within 30 days of employment as a technician. A certified pharmacy technician must complete the application for certified pharmacy technician and submit the application with the registration fee of $40.

    An individual who is beginning employment or training as a pharmacy technician and who is not yet certified must complete the application for technician trainee and submit the application with the registration fee of $20.

    A person who does not register as a pharmacy technician within 30 days of starting employment or training as a technician must pay a penalty fee in addition to the registration fee. All fees must be in the form of a check, money order, or cashier's check payable to the Iowa Board of Pharmacy.

    The Iowa Board of Pharmacy does not certify technicians. The Board recognizes certification by accredited certification boards. Currently accredited boards are ICPT and PTCB.
