Pharmacy Technician

The requirements for becoming a pharmacy technician vary from state to state in the US. We have provided links to state requirements below. As of the time of writing this article, there are no states that require a four year college degree to become a pharmacy technician.

Typically, states require that a student have either a Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) exam.

Some states may require an in-person internship or hands on training, however, if you work in a state that requires a PTCB exam, you may train for the exam online. Furthermore, at the time of writing this article, the PTCB reports they are working on an online proctored exam.
