Washington Pharmacy Tech Certificate – WA

How to Become a Pharmacy Technician in Washington

  1. In order to earn Washington pharmacy technician certification, you must graduate from a program approved by the Washington Board of Pharmacy and present a completed application signed by the program director. You also need to complete four hours of HIV/AIDS training and answer several personal data questions concerning your health and background.
  2. It is required to take the National Certification Examination and receive a passing grade; certificate must be presented. The Pharmacy Technician Certification Board administers this test at various locations in the United States. You can get in touch with the PTCB to find out how to register for the exam as well as when and where you’ll take it.

Once you’ve taken the test, your score will be given to you immediately. You must receive a score of at least 650 to pass. If you fail, you can take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam up to three times before you must submit an appeal to be approved by the PTCB on an individual basis. The exam costs $129 to take.

To renew your certification, you’ll need to turn in a renewal card and a renewal fee (which may change year to year). The application for renewal must be dated by the program director where your training took place. If your training was completed out-of-state, then you may instead provide a copy of your diploma or certificate of completion. Attached to the application must also be a verification that you have completed some form of law study.
