To be licensed as a Certified Oregon Pharmacy Technician, you must:
Have a high school diploma or GED at the time the Board issues the license;
Take and pass a national certification exam through PTCB or NHA;
Once you have received your national certification, apply for and receive your Certified Oregon Pharmacy Technician license. We will run a national fingerprint-based criminal background check in conjunction with this application. We recommend that you submit the complete application at least 4 weeks before your current license expires.
You WILL NOT be allowed to work as a pharmacy technician after your license expires unless you have received your Certified Oregon Pharmacy Technician license.
