      Ohio Pharmacy Technician Regulation Reminder

      Posted by Jessica Langley on January 2018

      The State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has begun accepting pharmacy technician registration applications. Per Ohio law, all pharmacy technicians practicing in Ohio must be registered with the Board by April 6, 2018.

      Registration of technicians involves the processing of application materials by Board of Pharmacy staff. Due to the high volume of expected applicants, it is strongly recommended that individuals apply for registration by March 1, 2018. Submission of applications and application materials by March 1, 2018 will ensure that existing technicians can be registered by the required deadline of April 6, 2018.

      There are three types of technician registrations available:

      1. Certified Pharmacy Technician
      2. Registered Pharmacy Technician
      3. Pharmacy Technician Trainees

      All technicians and trainees must determine which registration category is applicable to them. For additional information about the three registration categories you can refer to the Ohio Board of Pharmacy FAQ document.
