Georgia Pharmacy Technician Training Programs

Georgia pharmacy technician training programs

Although the Bureau reports that Georgia is home to 10,100 salaried pharmacy technicians, the Georgia Board of Pharmacy states that there were 15,646 active pharmacy technician licenses in the state of Georgia as of June 2012. And yes, the state does require all pharmacy technicians to register with the Board of Pharmacy. This rule became effective in March of 2011. The requirements for registration are as follows:

-Submit the $100 application fee;

-Attest that applicant is at least 17 years old;

-Attest that applicant is currently enrolled in high school, has a high school diploma or has a GED;

-Obtain a criminal history background check through the Cogent Systems/GAPS at a GAPS location;

-If currently employed in a pharmacy, submit the license number of the pharmacy where the applicant is employed; and

-If certified, submit a copy of applicant’s Pharmacy Technician Certification Board certificate.

Fortunately, the Georgia schools listed below offer top-tier certificate and degree programs that can help you prepare for a career as a pharmacy technician and pass the certification exam.
