Due to COVID-19-related problems we are experiencing with the vendor who normally sends our renewal reminders, the Board may NOT be able to individually notify licensees or registrants regarding their pending expiration date with a postcard. We are working hard to notify all impacted individuals and entities via email, but please be sure to check your renewal date to ensure that your license/registration remains active. You can find your expiration date via our verifications page.

Renew — Pharmacy Technicians
How often do I need to renew my registration?
Pharmacy technicians are required to renew their registration every two years on or before the last day of the month that their original registration was issued.
I don't remember my expiration date. How do I find out when my registration expires?
If you don't remember your registration expiry date, you can run a verification search. Search using either your registration number or your first and last name.
Do I need continuing education (CE) to renew my license?
Yes. Technicians are required to complete and report 20 hours of approved Continuing Education requirements. For more information, see the pharmacy technician continuing education FAQs.
How to Renew
All pharmacy technicians should renew online using the Online Licensing System. Renewal applications are only available if your registration is due to expire within 60 days. If your registration is not due to expire, you will not be able to see the renewal application.
Allow up to 10 business for the renewal application to be processed after submitting all required items (i.e. Application, Fee, Fingerprints, etc.). DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO RENEW.
Failure to successfully complete the renewal application will result in a delay of processing and may cause the registration to become delinquent. If your registration becomes delinquent, you cannot perform any technician duties unless and until the registration becomes active.
If needed, use the Step-by-Step Instructions for Renewing your Pharmacy Technician Registration.
