Mail Option Notes:
A) REVIEW the application for completeness prior to mailing.
B) Your application MUST be postmarked no later than your expiration date.
Applications not completed correctly will be returned and will require a $10 reapplication fee.
The recertification fee is $40 if processed online, $48 if faxed or mailed and payment submitted online and $50 if faxed or mailed. The fee may be
paid by check, money order or credit card. Certified technicians will be allowed to recertify up to 90 days after expiration of their
certification but cannot include CE credit earned during this grace period. After this 90-day grace period, technicians will lose their
certification status. Certified technicians who fail to recertify on time may be able to have their certification reinstated within 18 months
of their expiration date. Please see the following section on reinstatement. Checks returned for insufficient funds will be charged a
$25 administrative fee.
C. Address Corrections and Name Changes.
You will receive a new ICPT certificate by mail approximately 60 days after ICPT has received your recertification materials and approved your
application. Name or address changes should be sent to ICPT so that we may send a recertification application approximately 60 days prior to
the expiration date. It is the Certified Technician's responsibility to apply for certification on time. ICPT sends renewal notices as a
courtesy; Certified Technicians are responsible for recertifying on time whether or not they receive a renewal notice. If your name has changed,
you must notify ICPT. Please provide your full name, Social Security Number and appropriate documentation, such as a court order, marriage
license, divorce decree, etc.
D. Continuing Education.
Continuing education is necessary to maintain a high level of knowledge and skills in pharmacy practice. During the two-year period prior to recertification, certified pharmacy technicians must participate in at least 20 hours of continuing education (CE), including at least one hour of pharmacy law. Additional CE credits earned cannot be carried over to the next recertification period.
