Dinah’s Answer

To become a pharmacy technician, for retail you need to be 18 years old. You can get nationally certified in 2 years through the company you work with. Some pharmacies require you to be nationally certified before you apply. So it depends on the company you are applying for. Many pharmacies want you to be in pharmacy school or have gotten into pharmacy school. So, they are giving pharmacy students a better chance of finding work.

Perry’s Answer

The requirements to become a pharmacy technician mostly depend on your state's law. If you are curious about the requirements specific to where you live, you can always check out the website that your states pharmacy board endorses. Some states require formal training, then passing a national certification, then applying for a license with their state pharmacy board. Other states have no requirements except for formal training.

If a state has no requirements to become a pharmacy technician (which is rare), the requirement could then be dependent on the company you want to be employed.

Hi Shauna,

I am new to the forum but wanted to chime in on your question regarding becoming a pharmacy technician. In addition to the website provided to you earlier, you can also apply directly to different pharmacies. I would also suggest that you visit the website for the state board of pharmacy as they usually have technician support sites as well! Best of luck to you in your search. I have know several pharmacy technicians that moved on to become great Pharmacists! Please let me know if I can be of more assistance!
