Florida Pharmacy Technician State Requirements- Board of Pharmacy Technician Registration Instructions states the following requirements for becoming a pharmacy technician:
-Complete pharmacy technician registration application

  1. Hi Katie, for PTCB it does not matter where you take it. The issue with Florida is that they require formal training by an approved program.

  2. I took my national ptcb license exam in va is it accepted in florida?

  3. Does Florida state pharmacy board accepts credentials from Rasmussen Pharmacy tech program??

  4. Typically not, it is okay for states that do not require formal training, but where formal training can help you learn the business and be good for your resume.

  5. Does state accepts credential from Penn foster Pharmacy tech program.
