Indiana Pharmacy Tech Certificate – IN

How to Become a Pharmacy Technician in Indiana


While registration, formal educational training or certification, licensing renewal and continuing education are not required in some states, Indiana has high standards for pharmacy technicians, requiring all four criteria.

1) Registration is required.

  • One step to becoming a pharmacy technician in Indiana is to submit a registration application to the Indiana Board of Pharmacy (IBP). The cost of submission is $25 and the application can be accessed through the IBP website.

In addition, all applicants:

  • Must be at least 18 years old to register.
  • Must have at least a high school education or equivalent (GED)
  • Must be clear of any criminal or drug related convictions
  • Upon registering, applicants must provide proof of having completed an IBP approved training and education program or certification through a national certification organization

2) License renewal is required.

  • All pharmacy technicians complete a formal renewal application to the IBP.
  • All renewal applications must be submitted by June 30th on every even numbered year.
  • The cost of a renewal application is $25 and can be found at the IBP website.
  • Applicants cannot renew technician-in-training licenses. The expiration date on technician-in-training licenses is one year from the date of issue. Upon receiving a technician-in-training license, applicants have one year to get a pharmacy technician license through Indiana pharmacy technician certification programs online or formal, documented training.

3) Training is required.

  • Part of the registration process requires applicants to provide the IBP with an affidavit proving the completion of certified training through an IBP approved certification training and education agency.
  • The IBP recommends certification either through the Institute for the Certification of Pharmacy Technicians (ICPT) or the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board. (PTCB). Both the ICPT and PTCB provide educational materials and guidance to prepare applicants for a formal examination. Upon successfully passing ICPT or PTCB examination the applicant is granted the title CPhT, or certified pharmacy technician.
