STATE LICENSING REQUIREMENTS
- Reading level: 7.0, Math level: 9.0
- You must be age 18 or older
- Have a High School Diploma, GED, or HiSET
- Having a FELONY may conflict with ability to obtain a license with the Board of Pharmacy. The Board of Pharmacy reviews each applicant on a case-by-case basis and makes a final determination, denying or issuing a license after careful consideration of their research into each case.
Upon successful completion of all theory competencies outlined in the syllabus, in addition to satisfactory performance and review by the pharmacist during the pharmacy externship, you may be eligible to submit the pharmacy technician application to California's State Board of Pharmacy.
The Board of Pharmacy will evaluate each application and run a background check. After the proper documentation is submitted and licensing fees are paid, if approved by the Board of Pharmacy, your State License as a Pharmacy Technician will be issued and mailed to you. This license will allow you to work in any pharmacy setting in the state of California.
